KENDALLVILLE – Police in Fort Wayne raided a hotel room and took the suspect in a Kendallville shooting into custody early this morning.

WANE-TV reports the raid happened at the Magnuson Hotel near Coliseum and Coldwater after 3 a-m.

After failing to talk 27-year-old Kyle Gibson of Kendallville out over a loudspeaker, the Fort Wayne PD Emergency Services team used a flash bang on the room and came out with Gibson and a woman believed to be 26-year-old Alexis Jordan.

Both Gibson and the woman were taken to Kendallville Police who received a report of shots fired near Main and Wayne Streets at 11:05 Monday night. While responding to that location another call came in from Parkview Noble Hospital saying a man with a gunshot wound was dropped off and left by two unknown persons.

The victim – whose name is not being released – was transferred to a Fort Wayne hospital in critical condition.

The shooting happened in a garage behind a residence in the 300 block of North Main Street.
