A 40-year-old Fort Wayne man was the victim of a fatal shooting, according to the Allen County coroner's office. 

Pablo Guzman Vazquez was killed Sunday in the 600 block of Runnion Avenue, and the coroner identified him Tuesday. 

The cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds, and the manner is homicide. It is the 22nd homicide this year in Allen County. 

Police were called about 6 p.m. to the area, and Vazquez was found on the lawn outside a home, according to a news release. Investigators said someone called 911 to report shots fired. 

Officers checked a nearby house, but it's not clear whether it had any connection to the slaying. No other information has been released, and no one has been charged in the death.
