The county's 33rd homicide of the year took place Thursday evening in the 8300 block of Bridgeway Drive, in the Southbridge Apartments complex. A man was found unresponsive by Fort Wayne Police Department officers who were investigating reports of a shooting, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical personnel. A positive identification has not been made in that case.
That death has been determined to be a homicide, however, with the cause of death by gunshot wound.
Both cases are being investigated by the police department, the coroner's office and the Allen County Prosecutor's Office.
