Fort Wayne police today are investigating an early morning shooting that left a man in critical condition and a woman seriously injured, according to a news release.

Officers responded to a security alarm at Belmont Beverage, 2631 S. Anthony Blvd., about 2:18 a.m. this morning. Police also said several neighbors phoned about hearing shots fired in the area.

A short time later staffers at a local hospital told officers the two shooting victims arrived at the emergency room. The man had to be transferred to another hospital.

Officers believe the female victim drove herself and the man to the hospital.

Police said initial reports are that some type of disturbance broke out near Belmont Beverage, which sustained bullet holes in at least one window.

No further information was provided.
