On February 26, 2022, at 11:50 pm, officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the 2200 block of Oliver St on reports of gunfire. While en route, officers were advised that multiple people had been shot.

Officers arrived and located an adult female suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Officers immediately began CPR but the female was ultimately pronounced deceased by paramedics. Officers also located an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, who was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. A third adult male was taken by private conveyance to local hospital. One of these males is in life-threatening condition and other is in non-life-threatening condition.

Initial information indicates there was some type of gathering at a building in this area when a disturbance broke out and gunfire erupted. It is unclear at this time what led to the disturbance or shots being fired. Officers reported there were dozens of people on the scene who left before officers could speak with them; we are asking any of those persons who may have information to please contact police.

There are currently no suspects and no arrests have been made.

The two males at the hospital will be interviewed at the earliest opportunity. Crime scene technicians are currently processing the scene, searching for and collecting evidence. Detectives will be canvassing the area, attempting to locate any witnesses or video surveillance equipment on any of the nearby buildings.

Anyone with any information is strongly encouraged to contact police at 260-427-1201, Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867, or use the free “P3 Tips” app.

There is nothing further at this time.
