Fort Wayne police seek arrest after a man allegedly tried to shoot police

The Fort Wayne Police Department is seeking an arrest for a man who allegedly attempted to fire a handgun at police during a traffic stop at the intersection of Fort Wayne Road and Highway 99 on Friday.

The Fort Wardens are conducting a joint investigation into the incident.

The incident is still under investigation.

Police say the incident happened at about 5:30pm when a vehicle pulled alongside a vehicle carrying two people who had been issued a traffic ticket.

A man allegedly pulled out a handgun and started firing at police, police said.

“This man was in no way responsible for the shooting,” Sgt. Ryan Krumhofer said.

“He did nothing wrong, and he’s certainly not someone we should be getting involved with in this type of way.”

The driver of the car fled the scene on foot.

Krumhauer said there were no injuries in the shooting.

“It does look like there were several people involved, and we’re working with police on the details to try and determine if there were any injuries,” he said.

The Fort Warden’s investigation is continuing and they are requesting the public’s help in identifying the suspect.
