The victim was identified Monday as 48-year-old Warrell K. Booher of Fort Wayne. The Allen County Coroner’s office said Booher died of a stab wound to his chest and his death was ruled a homicide, the county’s fourth of 2020.

Sgt. Sofia Rosales-Scatena with FWPD said the initial investigation leads them to believe an argument started in the hallway, leading to the stabbing.

Police named Michael Foster, a six foot, 210 pound man in his 50s, a person of interest and asked for the public’s help in finding him.

Foster came into the police station to be interviewed about 5:00 p.m. Saturday and afterward was charged with aggravated battery in the stabbing death of a male Friday night, police said.

Foster was expected to be arraigned Monday morning in Allen Superior Court.
