Fort Wayne, Ind. (WANE) — A man was shot to death during a fight inside a mobile home on Fort Wayne’s far-southeast side early Tuesday.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting inside a mobile home in the 4900 block of Wayne Park Drive just after 3:30 a.m. They arrived and found a man had been shot.

Medics determined he was in critical condition and took him to a local hospital. He died there, police said.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office identified the victim later as 56-year-old Kenneth Rollingcloud of Fort Wayne. Rollingcloud died of gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

Preliminary information indicates that Rollingcloud and another man were inside the mobile home when an altercation erupted between them. One of the men pulled out a handgun which ultimately discharged, striking Rollingcloud.

The other man involved in the altercation stayed at the scene. Detectives are interviewing him about what happened.

He has not been identified.

At this time, it is not clear if the men live at the mobile home park or what their relationship is to each other. Police are also still trying to determine which man produced the handgun and what caused it to go off.

Detectives are interviewing those involved and any other possible witnesses. Crime scene technicians are processing the scene and documenting and collecting evidence.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
