Police are looking for clues after a man died this morning on Oliver Street.

Fort Wayne Police responded to a report of a person shot at 12:10 a.m. inside a home in the 3000 block of Oliver Street, where officers found a man suffering from apparent gunshot wound(s). Officers applied first aid, but the man was pronounced dead by paramedics, the report said.

Neighbors reportedly heard gunshots and saw two males running from the scene; however, there are no descriptions of the males. 

Police also report an unharmed female was inside the home at the time, although her relationship to the victim and the home is currently unknown. 

Investigators are unsure if the shooting took place inside or outside the home.

Detectives and crime scene technicians are processing the scene, and anyone with information about the apparent shooting should call police at the Fort Wayne Police Department at 427-1222 or CrimeStoppers at 436-STOP (436-7867).
