Fort Wayne, Indiana (April 25, 2021) – Since being taken into custody early Thursday morning, the suspect in this incident, Justin R. Weikel, 40, of LaOtto, has remained in a Fort Wayne area hospital receiving medical care until early yesterday afternoon.
Weikel was released from medical care yesterday, and then transferred to the custody of the Allen County jail. He is being detained on an outstanding Noble County arrest warrant, charges which are unrelated to the police action shooting incident.
The Indiana State Police investigation surrounding the events that led to police action shooting remains ongoing. Again, once that investigation is finished, the full report will be turned over to the Noble County Prosecutor for review and determination of criminal charges to be filed.
There is no further information to release at this time.
