FORT WAYNE, Ind (21Alive) -- Early Sunday morning Police were dispatched to a residence in Albant Court in reference to a possible shooting.

When police arrived they found a man inside the residence sitting in a pool of blood with a gunshot wound to his knee. The victim, Jeremy L. Chagoya, claims he was meeting a woman he met on Craigslist when she said she had to step outside. She then came back in with a masked man holding a gun.

The victim claims he tried to offer the masked man his belongings but the masked man shot the victim in the knee with a shotgun. The female and the masked man then left through the front door.

The incident is still under investigation.

Note: Fort Wayne Police Department misidentified the victim in the shooting in a previous report. 21Alive has changed our story to reflect the corrections. The name of the victim is Jeremy L. Chagoya
