FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- A Fort Wayne man was in critical condition late Sunday after police say it appears someone fired shots into a home. 

Officers responded to multiple calls about a shooting in the 4200 block of Warsaw Street at 11:19 p.m.

Warsaw Street home shooting

There they found a man with at least one gunshot wound to his face.

He was identified as 59-year-old Buddy Barnes.

Police say Barnes was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

No suspect information has been released. 

This is at least the fourth shooting in two weeks in which someone was killed or wounded after shots were fired into their home.

Police first told FOX 55 News last week that the first three shootings all appear to be linked, and possibly gang-related.

It wasn't immediately clear early Monday if police believe the latest shooting is related. 

The first shooting happened Jan. 12 when someone fired shots into the window of a Logan Avenue home, wounding an 8-year-old boy.

The second happened a day later when a 13-year-old boy was shot and wounded when he opened the door at a home on Euclid Avenue. 

The third shooting happened on Jan. 20 when someone fired at least 16 rounds into a home on Senate Avenue, killing 49-year-old Than Kahn Khai.

Police told FOX 55 they don't believe Khai was the intended target. 

Anyone who may have any information on this shooting or any other shooting is urged to call 260-427-1201 or 260-436-STOP.
