Man found shot, later dies

February 3, 2019

A man was shot dead Saturday at Gaywood Drive and Senate Avenue .

The unidentified man was apparently shot multiple times, said Mark Bieker, Fort Wayne Police Department public information officer.

Police responded about 8:30 p.m. to shots fired and found the man lying in the side yard of a house in the 4400 block of Gaywood Drive, on the Senate Avenue side.

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and died shortly thereafter, according to Bieker.

If the shooting death is declared a homicide, it will be the first homicide in Allen County for 2019.

A resident in the area said it was the second shooting at that intersection in the last few months, and that the other shooting occurred cater-cornered to Saturday night’s shooting death.

Police were still canvassing the area Saturday night looking for evidence and witnesses to the shooting, which remains under investigation.
