The Journal Gazette

Three people were shot this morning in what police said was a home invasion.

Just before 8 a.m., police were called to the 4000 block of Reed Street, where a homeowner was shot during a home invasion. The two people inside the home, Demale Amos, 37 and Jamika Martin, 35, told police the suspect or suspects may have been shot before they ran off. 

Amos was shot in the foot and refused medical treatment. Martin was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Shortly after police arrived at the home, a third person showed up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds that were life-threatening, a statement from Fort Wayne police said.

That person is now a suspect, an updated release said this afternoon.

The police department is using Ring Portal to assist in requesting video from houses in the area of the shooting, the statement said. Anyone with video of the incident is asked to share it with police.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call police at 260-427-1201 or Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867.
