Police investigating man's death in St. Marys Avenue apartment

MATTHEW LEBLANC | The Journal Gazette

Fort Wayne police are investigating a man's death Sunday in an apartment just north of downtown.

Mark Bieker, a spokesman for the Fort Wayne Police Department, said investigators were called around 7:30 p.m. to 1309 St. Marys Ave., where they were told there had been a shooting.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to a news release. 

Bieker said the death is under investigation and could not confirm the man was shot to death. Neighbors reported hearing no shots, he said.

Few details were available Sunday night, as the two-story white home that contained two apartments was cordoned off with yellow caution tape. Detectives and crime scene investigators talked with neighbors and looked around the property.

Bieker said the man who died was alone in the downstairs apartment. A male tenant was upstairs, sleeping, when police arrived, he said.
