Man critically hurt in shooting at entrance to Fort Wayne apartment complex


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A man was shot early Tuesday at a south Fort Wayne apartment complex.

Fort Wayne Police and medics were called around 4:30 a.m. to the 6200 block of Chatham Drive, off South Hanna Street, after a caller said a person was shot in the area. First responders found a man in a car in front of a home suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police told WANE 15 the victim was in a car when he was shot.

No other information, including suspect information or the victim’s identification, or a motive, was released.
