FWPD: Second man sought in Thanksgiving shooting spree faces murder charges

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – The second man connected to a Thanksgiving home invasion that left three people dead and two others critically wounded will face multiple charges, including three counts of murder, once captured.

Fort Wayne police on Friday said Gerald Pinkston, 22, is wanted as a suspect in the case. He had earlier been named a person of interest.

Pinkston is described as 5’7″ tall and weighs about 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Police believe he may be armed and dangerous.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911 immediately.

Two men and a woman died at the scene, in the 6100 block of Downingtown Drive, around 10:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Two other men were rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Detectives later determined the home had been targeted because it had been used to deal marijuana.

Kameron Joyner was arrested within hours of the crime and remained at the Allen County Jail Friday. He is also charged with three counts of murder and other crimes.
