Location: Anthony Blvd & Oxford Ave.

Victim: Adult Female 


On Saturday, 07/23/2022, at approximately 2:05 AM, the City of Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the 1800 block of Pontiac St regarding a shooting.

Officers arrived on scene to find an adult female victim suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a local hospital and is reported as being in life- threatening condition. Officers learned that the shooting took place at the intersection of Anthony Blvd & Oxford St, while the victim was inside a vehicle stopped at a red light. Shots were fired from another vehicle striking the vehicle that the victim was inside. Officers did locate several casings at that intersection, which caused the roadway to be closed for evidence collection. The driver of the vehicle attempted to drive the victim to the hospital, but eventually pulled over to call 911 for medical assistance.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact the Fort Wayne Police Department at 427-1201, Crime Stoppers at 436-7867, or use the free “P3 Tips” app. This incident remains under investigation by the City of Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
