FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - An autopsy has just been completed on the body of a second victim to die after a bar shooting in Fort Wayne this weekend.

22-year-old Jaquan Gentry of Fort Wayne is Allen County's 23rd homicide victim of the year.

He died Sunday morning, just hours after 23-year-old Jeffrey Moore died from his wounds.

Fort Wayne Police say multiple shots were fired during a brawl involving hundreds of people in and outside of "Broadripple's Rick O'Shay's" nightclub off Parnell Avenue, early Sunday morning.

26-year-old Demetrius Masterson was wounded, but has been released from the hospital.

And police want your help to sort out what happened.

Officer Mike Joyner says, “We had 200 plus people there. You can't convince me that a large number of individuals did not witness whatever the disturbance was, whatever the level of the disturbance was prior to this. There is key information contained by individuals that saw it.”

This weekend's violence comes about 6 months after a 20-year-old man was shot and killed outside Rick O'Shay's.

If you saw the shooting, or know what happened, you can call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 436-STOP.
