Fort Wayne police are investigating the death of a man found in a field that dead ends on Oakwood Drive on the city’s south side.

Investigators were in the 3300 block area and are not treating it as a homicide, a spokesman said. Police said someone discovered the body while walking in the field Saturday morning.

At least one neighbor on the street said she heard something that sounded like gunshots in the neighborhood. Officers responded about 9:30 a.m. Saturday, emergency dispatchers said.

The cause and manner of death, as well as the man’s identity, will be released at a later date by the Allen County coroner’s office.

No further information was available.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 260-427-1201 or Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867.
