Allen County Ties Record for Homicides

by Sammy Edmonds posted Dec 5 2013 10:28AM
An ongoing string of shootings has put Indiana's third-most populous county in the dubious position of tying its record for homicides in a year.
Allen County's 44th homicide for this year happened on Tuesday when police say a man was shot multiple times inside a house on Fort Wayne's southeast side.
The “Journal Gazette” reports Allen County reached the same number of homicides in 1997. Fort Wayne Police Chief Rusty York blames much of the violence on robberies and retribution among those involved in gangs and drug dealing.
