FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police are investigating a shooting on the city’s northeast side that left four people injured.

Officers responded to the shooting in the 6600 block of Pawawna Drive around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. That home belongs to Jodi Rodriguez who said she was out-of-town when it happened.

“It looked like a war zone in there. There was blood all over my stove, my floor, and my hallway. It looked like they went up the stairs,” Rodriguez said. “I don’t have a hazmat team in here right now and trust me it looked like I needed one.”

Rodriguez says she left her 16-year-old daughter at home for the weekend with an adult with strict orders to not have anyone over, but that didn’t stop her daughter from throwing a party.

“One Snap Chatted to one and the other Snap Chatted to the other and that’s the way of notification of parties now a days,” Rodriguez said.

That party quickly turned violent. Someone was asked to leave and then at least 16 shots rang out from outside hitting four people inside the home, according to police. One teen is in critical condition, three others are in good condition.

“I told her several times what would happen if something happened in my house and it did,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez said if her daughter wanted attention – now she’s got it.

“I said look around you. You got media, you got media, you got yellow tape, you got cameras and you got my neighbors. If you wanted recognition honey, you got it.”

Now, Rodriguez is left dealing with a mess and a police investigation at her home.

“She knows something. She’s telling it,” Rodriguez said about her daughter.

Police said there is a possible fifth victim from the shooting who may have suffered very minor injuries.

Police said they have no suspect information.

The incident is under investigation.
