Shots Fired at Dana

Date: 4/13/24

Location: 2100 W. State Blvd.

Time: 12:43 AM


The Fort Wayne Police Department is investigating a shots fired call that occurred April 13, 2024 at roughly 12:43 AM at 2100 W. State Blvd. (Dana).  Initial call comments indicated that a fight had occurred and shots(s) were fired inside the plant.  It was unknown at that time whether the shooting was an isolated incident or an active shooter situation.

The plant was evacuated and police cleared the plant looking for the suspect and any potential victims.  This took some time, as the plant is a massive structure.  Once the scene was secure, video was reviewed showing the suspect leaving the building, shortly after the shooting and prior to police arrival. 

Management was cooperative with police and advised that a fight had occurred between two employees.  Initially it was a verbal confrontation only, but one of the employees went to their vehicle and retrieved a handgun.  That employee went back inside to confront the other worker.  During the course of the confrontation a shot was fired.  No one was injured in the shooting and the victim was uncooperative with police. 

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