Authorities have identified the man fatally shot Friday afternoon at Baldwin Creek Apartments on Fort Wayne’s near-northeast side.
The death of Johnny Lee Upshaw, 21, a city resident, was ruled a homicide, according to the Allen County Coroner’s Office. It was the 34th homicide in the city and county this year.
Shortly after 2 p.m. Friday, police were called to Baldwin Creek Apartments, along Hobson Road just south of East State Boulevard. Officers found Upshaw on the ground outside Building F, police said.
Severely wounded, he was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center. At 2:44 p.m., he was pronounced dead at the hospital, the coroner’s office said.
The shooting left a second man with a minor gunshot wound to his leg. He was treated and released from the hospital that day, police said. His name has not been made public.
Witnesses reported seeing the shooter or shooters leave in a black Dodge Charger. That car was later found in a nearby neighborhood, with no one inside, police said.
As of late Friday, no arrests had been made, and a motive had not been determined.
