Top Stories

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – One woman is dead and a man is in the hospital after police were called to an apartment complex located off of Dupont Road for suicide threats Friday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the 10000 block of Day Lily Drive in the Oak Crossing apartment complex around 8 a.m. for suicide threats. Police found one woman dead and a man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

WANE 15’s Briana Brownlee spoke with neighbors and no one seemed to know the victims. One neighbor said she moved the apartment complex about two months ago. She said when she was walking her dog Friday morning when she saw the sheriff’s department arrive. She said things then escalated.

“I feel safe here, not going to let this deter our living arrangements here or anything,” the woman said. “We just have to pray for the families.”

Police said the identity of the victim, cause and manner of death will be released by the Allen County Coroner’s Office.

The Allen County Sheriff’s department said this is still early in the investigation.
