One person was killed and three others injured, two critically, in a shooting early today at a Lima Road club, Fort Wayne police said.

Police said they were called to Bleu Diamond Showclub, 9439 Lima Road, shortly before 4 a.m. on a report of a shooting.

Officers found a man inside the club who appeared to be suffering from a gunshot wound or wounds. He died at the scene.

Two local hospitals then notified police they had received a total of three shooting victims who said they had been shot at the club.

Two of the victims, who were in critical condition, were taken to other local hospitals for treatment, police said. They said the third victim, in serious condition, remained at the initial hospital for treatment.

Early today detectives were interviewing witnesses who were inside the club when the shooting occurred, and technicians were processing the scene and collecting evidence, police said. They said they didn't know whether the club had surveillance video that would assist in identifying the shooter or shooters.

Anyone with information is asked to call city police at 260-427-1222 or Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867.

The incident is being investigated by city police, the Allen County prosecutor's office and the county coroner's office.
