FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police were called to a disturbance near the intersection of Rudisill Boulevard and Clinton Street Sunday evening and NewsChannel 15 was told that a man was arrested by the Gang and Violent Crimes Unit.
More than half a dozen squad cars were on the scene at one point and several viewers called NewsChannel 15 asking what was going on. An officer at the scene told us that a man was in his yard waving a shotgun around and pointing it at people and cars going by. Neighbors called 911, and the officer said when the man heard police were coming, he threw the gun over a fence.
Officers did a background check on the man and found out he is “a serious, violent felon.”
The Gang and Violent Crimes Unit arrested him for illegally being in possession of a firearm. The officer did not tell us the man’s name.
