FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police are investigating a shooting that left two people in critical condition.
Officers responded to the 2600 block of S. Clinton Street near the intersection with E. Pontiac Street, around 9:50 Monday night.
Officers found two people – a man and a woman – suffering from gunshot wounds. Medics took both to a hospital, where doctors determined their injuries were life-threatening.
The victims were at a Popeye’s restaurant, but at this time, investigators do not believe the shooting happened there. It appears the victims went to the restaurant for help afterwards.
Detectives are interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence to piece together exactly what happened. They’re asking anyone with information to call the Detective Bureau 427-1201, or Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP.
Clinton Street was closed until almost 2 a.m. while police investigated.
