FT. WAYNE, Ind. – Police in Fort Wayne surrounded a home Friday morning after reports of an active shooter in the area.
According to WANE, dispatchers received a call about shots fired around 8 a.m. at an apartment complex east of downtown Fort Wayne. A man with a rifle reportedly fired several shots.
Police surrounded a home in the 800 block of East Berry where the man was believed to have taken refuge. There were no reports of anyone actually being shot.
WANE reported that three people were eventually taken from the home. Officers were waiting for a search warrant to go inside. It’s unclear if the people taken from the home were involved in the incident.
Ft. Wayne police told FOX59 that they didn’t consider this an active shooter incident, although Indiana Tech posted the following message on its website telling students to shelter in place:
There is an active-shooter situation in East Central Towers, Washington Blvd., just west of campus. If you are on the main campus, shelter in place. That means stay in your present location and do not leave the building. You will be notified when the shelter in place alert is lifted.
The blockade is due to a SWAT call out for shots fired in the area. There is NO active shooter.
