Man, 59, killed in shooting

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A 59-year-old Fort Wayne man was shot to death in the middle of a southeast-side street early Friday morning.

Fort Wayne police were called around 3:10 a.m. to the intersection of McKee and Abbott streets on a report of a shooting there. Responders arrived to find a man’s body in the road about 20 feet east of the intersection.

Police investigate a fatal shooting at McKee and Abbott streets in southeast Fort Wayne on Friday, July 7, 2017.

He was pronounced dead by paramedics. The Allen County Coroner’s Office later Friday identified the man as 59-year-old Victor Adu Curry of Fort Wayne. He died of gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, the coroner’s office said.

FWPD Spokesman Officer Jason Anthony said it appeared Curry had been shot in the chest.

Police placed crime scene tape around the intersection and used a metal detector in the grass to look for possible evidence. Detectives also went to various houses looking for potential witnesses or to gather more information about what happened.

Anthony said some type of disturbance at or near a house led to the shooting.

Anthony said there is no current suspect information and no arrests have been made.

The incident is under investigation.
