On 2/11/17 at approximately 9:25pm Officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Indiana State Police responded to a shooting at 4700 Jason Dr.  The complainant party called police and advised that he had been shot in the head and robbed.  Upon police arrival a male black was located at the 4700 block of Jason Dr. suffering from a gunshot wound to the back of the head.  The victim was alert and talking.  The victim stated that he had been robbed and shot by a male black with dread locks and a fur type coat.


Medics arrived on scene and began to render treatment.   Medics advised that the victim’s condition was serious and transported him to a local hospital, where he remains in serious condition.


A short time later a shooting victim arrived at a local hospital in critical condition.  The victim was a male black with dread locks and fur type hooded sweat shirt.  It appears that the two shootings are related and tied to the same incident.


At this time we do not know what role each participant played in the incident.  Detectives were working on getting a search warrant for an address on Jason Dr.  There was at least one witness who was transported to the Police Operations Center for questioning.  A neighborhood canvass was also conducted.  The crime scene was also being processed for evidence.


This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutors Office.
