FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Police arrested a man accused of shooting a woman who later over herself to a nearby hospital in Fort Wayne early last month after an argument about something he could not find for his phone.
Detectives with the Fort Wayne Police Department arrested 21-year-old Gage Oneil Workman Thursday after he allegedly shot a woman back on Nov. 7 in the area of State Boulevard and Beacon Street.
The victim drove herself to Parkview Hospital Randallia and staff there called 911 to report she had been shot.
She was later transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center for treatment.
The woman was listed in critical condition at the time and had "numerous surgeries" according to a probable cause affidavit.
According to court documents, police interviewed Workman on Nov. 19 about the shooting and said he got into an argument with the woman about a cube for his phone and she tried to leave the apartment with a gun.
He alleges that he "had to stop her and take the gun away from her."
After the woman left the apartment around 11 p.m. on Nov. 7, Workman claimed he did not know where she went then left 10-15 minutes later on.
Three weeks after the shooting occurred, FWPD investigators were finally able to interview the woman at PRMC on Tuesday, Nov. 30.
The woman reportedly told detectives she was at an apartment with her friend and Workman.
According to court documents, Workman was mad about a cube for his phone he couldn't find.
When the victim left the apartment, she drove west down State Boulevard and noticed another car was following her.
As she approached the area of State and Beacon Street the woman said she got into the left lane and the car behind pull up alongside her.
The woman said after that she recognized it was Workman and he was in the car by himself when he pulled out a gun and started shooting at her.
She managed to drive to Parkview Randallia which is roughly five blocks away from where she was shot, court documents allege.
Workman is facing felony charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery.
He is being held at the Allen County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
