November 13, 2018

One man is dead and another was in critical condition Monday after a shooting near a north Fort Wayne Kroger.

Police say the shooting may be the result of some kind of interaction that took place in the parking lot of West State Plaza near the Kroger gas station.

About 5:50 p.m., city police arrived at 1125 W. State Blvd. on a report of a shooting.

Officers found one man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

A few moments later, officers were alerted to a second victim who was taken to a hospital by private car.

That victim was pronounced dead at the hospital.

If declared a homicide by the county coroner, it would be the 40th in Allen County this year.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, the Allen County prosecutor’s office and the Allen County coroner’s office.
