Investigators with the Fort Wayne Police Department have few leads in the Nov. 28 fatal shooting at 1108 E. Pontiac St.; the department released video footage of the homicide suspect that was captured via Pontiac Mall surveillance cameras in hopes of getting tips from residents. In the video, a man dressed all in black with a hoodie on his head walks casually down a corridor after attempting unsuccessfully to open a door. As he walks back toward where he came, two people walk past him before he goes into the door from which they exited. Later he turns a corner, out of view of the camera. About a minute later a person going into one of the mall businesses waves in the direction of the camera, the same direction from which the suspect comes running back seconds later before appearing to lower his hoodie with his left hand as he runs out a door.

Kenton Allen Beckman, 44, of Fort Wayne shot to death at 3:53 p.m. that day at E&M Barbershop. Beckman was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Allen County coroner's and prosecutor's offices are also involved in the investigation.

Beckman is the 26th homicide victim in Fort Wayne and Allen County in 2012.
