FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - The Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD) responded to the report of a shooting on the City’s southwest side Thursday afternoon.

FWPD says around 1:45 p.m., officers were headed to a disturbance in the 1500 block of Fenwick Place, in the Preston Pointe at Inverness Apartments, when dispatchers called out a report of a shooting on Illinois Road.

A woman was driving an SUV east on Illinois Road with a male passenger when another car came alongside them, also going east, and started shooting at them, FWPD says.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and the man was not injured. There were visible bullet holes in the driver’s side of the SUV.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the FWPD detective bureau at 260-427-1201.
