FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police are investigating a shooting that left one woman dead, and two other people hurt early Sunday morning.
Destinie Haywood, 21, of Fort Wayne suffered from multiple gunshot woods and was later pronounced dead, according to the Allen County Coroner. She is the 2nd homicide in Allen County this year.
Police have identified the other two of the victims as Tieranie L. Giddens, 16, of Fort Wayne and Keon Daval Oakley Jr., 25, of Fort Wayne. Both were last reported in serious condition with gunshot wounds to the leg.
Officers with the Fort Wayne Police department and the Allen County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Sunoco gas station at Hanna Street and McKinnie Avenue just before 1 a.m.
When they arrived, they initially found two victims at the gas station. Officers found Giddens inside the gas station in serious condition.
Police also found Haywood inside a car in the parking lot. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition where she later died.
Oakley was also shot at the gas station. He ran from the area to a house in the 4500 block of Monroe Street, just a few blocks away. That’s where police say he called 911 and waited for help. He was in serious to good condition.
Police said initial investigations indicate some kind of disturbance happened in the parking lot of the gas station. It eventually led to the three victims being shot.
Giddens then ran inside the gas station for help, while the male victim ran to the house of Monroe Street.
Detectives searched the area for witnesses while crime scene units searched for and collected evidence.
Investigators said they hope security footage from several nearby businesses will help with the investigation.
