Two critically hurt in shooting, may have shot each other

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Two people were critically hurt in a shooting Monday.

Officers were called to 2500 block of S. Lafayette St., near Reservoir Park, around 9:00 Monday night, on reports of a shooting.

Police believe the shooting happened in an alley between E. Suttenfield St. and E. Woodland Ave.

When police got to the scene, they found a victim in an alley between Barr St., S. Lafayette St., E. Suttenfield St., E. Woodland Ave. He was critically hurt.

While officers were working that scene, another man was found at a different spot nearby. He also had critical injuries and was taken to the hospital in a personal car.

On Tuesday, police identified the victims as 23-year-old Keytron Jermaine Liston of Fort Wayne and 25-year-old Larry Montreal Briggs of Fort Wayne.

Police tell NewsChannel 15 it appears the shooting happened in the alley.

Investigators are working to verify the victims shot each other or if someone else was involved. Nobody was arrested and police did not have suspect information.

There are several houses in the block where the crime scenes were. Officers talked to neighbors and other people who may have seen the shooting happen.

The snow played a factor in slowing the scene investigation.

Anybody with information is asked to call police.

The incident is under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and Allen County Coroner’s Office.
