Location: 3000 Oliver St


Victim:    Adult Male / Deceased




On September 7, 2017, at 12:10am, the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a report of a person shot inside of a home in the 3000 block of Oliver St. Officers arrived and located an adult male inside a house, suffering from apparent gunshot wound(s). Officers determined the male to be in critical condition and began applying first aid, but the male was subsequently pronounced deceased by paramedics.


The only information available is that neighbors heard gunshots and then saw two males running from the scene. There are no descriptions of these males. There was one other female inside the home, who was unharmed, and her relationship to the victim and the home is currently unknown. At this time, investigators are not sure if the shooting took place inside or outside of the home.


Detectives are going door to door, searching for anyone who may have witnessed the incident. Crime scene technicians will be processing the scene, searching for and collecting any evidence.


Anyone with any information is asked to call police. The identity of the deceased, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Allen County Coroner’s Office.


This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, Allen County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Allen County Coroner’s Office.
