UPDATED: Wednesday night self-defense shooting in Fort Wayne; arrest made

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  Fort Wayne Police are investigating yet another shooting, concluding an overall violent month of November across the city.  This one happened late Wednesday Night, shortly after 11 P.M. Police were called to the 2300 block of Brooklyn Ave after a male called 911 claiming another male attacked him, and that he shot the male in self defense. Officers arrived and found an adult male victim suffering an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was then transported a local hospital where he was declared to be in life threatening condition. The male who called 911 remained on scene and is cooperating, as the incident remains under investigation.

UPDATE: The Fort Wayne Police Department says that 33-year-old Christopher Vibbert has been arrested. He faces charges of domestic battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery.


  1. I’m confused. I thought the victim was the one who shot the aggressor? Or was the guy who was defending himself (the victim) transported to the hospital?

  2. With the condition of the education system expect confusing article that get clicks but say nothing to inform the public. Chaos is the goal and the media is eyeballs deep in the effort. Very poor reporting by the WOWO team. Don;t hold you breath waiting on a correction of a modification.
