The Journal Gazette

Fort Wayne police are investigating a shooting that left a man dead on the city's northeast side early today.

Officers said they received several calls about shots being fired in the 1000 block of Ridgewood Drive at The Summit apartment complex near Parnell Avenue.

Police said they found the victim on the ground outside one of the apartment's buildings suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

Paramedics took the man to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, officers said. Police confirmed later this morning he died.

The Allen County coroner will identify the man, possibly as early as today.

In August, the Summit apartment complex also was where police found Justin Cedrick Dawson, 25, dead from multiple gunshots.

No further details were provided about today's shooting and police are asking anyone with information to call them at 260-427-1222 or Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867.
