FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Fort Wayne Police are investigating an early morning shooting downtown that left two people hurt.

Just before 3:00 a.m. Saturday, police were called to the area of Harrison and Pearl Street for a report of shots fired. Officers were able to find a suspect who had shot a gun into the air. That suspect was taken into custody. 

Witnesses told officers they heard more gunshots coming from the 600 block of south Calhoun Street. A short time later, they got a call that two male victims had arrived at a local hospital with gunshot wounds. They were taken there by a private vehicle.
