Journal Gazette

A man is dead after an apparent shooting late Saturday in the 1400 block of Broadway.

Police were called to a rear parking lot at 11:47 p.m. on a report of shots fired, a statement from Fort Wayne police said. Police did not say if the parking lot belonged to any businesses. While officers were headed to the scene, they were told a person had been shot.

When officers arrived, they found a man lying on the ground and suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, the statement said. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.

While several people reported hearing gunshots, police said they have little information to go on and are looking for witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call police. A police dog track was attempted but not successful, according to the statement.

The name of the victim as well as cause and manner of death will be released by the Allen County coroner's office. If the death is ruled a homicide, it will be the 20th in Allen County this year.
