WAYNEDALE, Ind. (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Police Department is investigating a shooting at an apartment complex that left one man dead early Thursday morning.

Police, medics, and fire crews responded to Bluffton Park Apartments in the 2900 block of Boardwalk Circle around 1:30 a.m. That’s off of Bluffton Road, between Lower Huntington Road and Airport Expressway in Waynedale.

Police identified the deceased man as Dominic Price, 26, of Fort Wayne.

Police officials said they’re still trying to figure out exactly what led to the shooting, but witnesses told them they heard some kind of disturbance between two men, then multiple gunshots.

When police and medics arrived, they found Price with gunshot wounds outside of one of the apartments.

Medics initially took him to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. When they got to the hospital, staff there pronounced him dead.

According to police, they have a person of interest in custody, but no arrests have been made. Detectives were interviewing the alleged shooter at the police station Thursday morning.

Detectives were also going door-to-door around the apartment complex to gather witness statements that might shed more light on the situation. There is also security video at the apartments that police plan to examine.

Crime scene technicians pulled up to the scene and began collecting evidence as well.

Price’s death is the 23rd homicide in Allen County for 2019.
