CORONER: Man killed by shots fired into home identified

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — The Allen County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim in the shooting on Senate Avenue Monday morning.

The coroner has formally identified the man as 49-year-old Than Kahn Khai, and his death was ruled a homicide.

Police responded to a shooting just after midnight Jan. 20 at 3411 Senate Ave. They found one man suffering from gunshot wounds who later died from his injuries.

Detectives found shell casings outside of the home in the street, which lead them to believe the shots were fired from outside.

Khai's death marks the third homicide in Allen County so far this year.
