FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Three people, including a small child, are in critical condition after a pair of shootings in Fort Wayne Sunday.

Police believe the shooting may have been accidental, and may release more details once they finish interviewing witnesses.

In a second instance, police were called to a home in the 1500 block of East Paulding Road shortly after 3:30pm after a man walked up to a neighbor’s house and told them he had been shot.
