Journal Gazette

Fort Wayne police have little information about an apparent shooting that claimed a woman's life early Tuesday in Waynedale.

Just before 5 a.m., officers found a woman with a gunshot wound.

She was inside a house in the 6500 block of Old Trail Road, near Bluffton and Lower Huntington roads on the city's southwest side.

Paramedics arrived, and the woman was taken to a hospital in serious condition. She later died, police said.

Detectives canvassed the area for possible witnesses, and crime scene technicians searched the home for any evidence.

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

The Allen County coroner will identify the woman after an autopsy.

The Allen County prosecutor's office is also investigating the death.

The Fort Wayne Fire Department and Three Rivers Ambulance Authority assisted authorities at the scene.
