2 men critically hurt in shooting

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Two men were critically hurt in a shooting on the city’s southeast side Friday morning.

The call came in around 9:15 a.m. to 1711 E. Creighton Avenue for a reported shooting.

Upon arrival police, fire and medics discovered two victims, one located inside the business and the second in the parking lot. Both victims were transported to a hospital where they were reported to be in critical condition.

Investigators believe the shooting began inside the restaurant area of the club, where the first victim was found, and then continued outside to the parking lot where the second victim was observed.

It appears that there was only one perpetrator who was described as a black man.

Five people were inside at the time, and police are talking with them to learn more about what led up to the violence.

At this time detectives have not determined a motive and are interviewing witnesses to develop the identity of a possible suspect.

Investigators hope to glean more information from any surveillance cameras in the area as well.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers.
