FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A Fort Wayne man died after a shooting near downtown Sunday afternoon, according to the Allen County Coroner.
Fort Wayne Police said officers were dispatched to reports of a shooting in the 1000 block of Rockhill Street around noon. When they arrived on-scene, officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. The shot was fired after a “domestic dispute,” police said.
The victim was initially taken to a nearby hospital in life-threatening condition. An update Monday said the man, 44-year-old Montreale Cornelius Turner, died from his injuries.
The coroner determined Turner died from a gunshot wound and the manner of death was homicide.
One person of interest was detained Sunday for further investigation. A WANE 15 crew at the scene learned the person of interest is a man possibly between the ages of 18-25, and he was believed to be living with the victim. The relationship between the two is unknown. The type of gun used in the shooting is also unknown.
Fort Wayne Police and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office are continuing the investigation.
