Death Investigation


Date:                            Wednesday, November 6, 2013


Time:                            3:30 p.m.


Location:                       3530 S. Calhoun Street


Victim:                          Male Adult        



Details:                        Officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the reported shooting located in front of 3530 S. Calhoun Street this afternoon at approximately 3:30 p.m. Once on scene an unresponsive adult male was found outside of the Premium Cuts Barbershop. The male was pronounced dead by fire and medic personnel upon their arrival.


                                    The scene was located directly across the street from Southside High School and as a result a lockdown was initiated by school officials which lasted for approximately 30-minutes. Southside had already released students from class approximately 55-minutes prior to the incident. The 3500 and 3600 blocks of S. Calhoun Street were closed to through traffic during the investigation.


                                    Detectives canvassed the area looking for potential witnesses to the event and documented the entire scene before reopening Calhoun Street to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. We are asking anyone that might have witnessed the event to contact crime Stoppers at 436-STOP or call our non-emergency line at 427-1222 to report what they might have observed.  


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