04/10/2011 - Fort Wayne Nightclub/Bar Shootings

APRIL 10, 2011 - FORT WAYNE, Ind. ( - It is the weekend and you are looking to have a good time. You go out with your friends and have a few drinks. Nigh Club ShootingsIt is all fun, until you hear gunshots. This has become an all to familiar thing for some Fort Wayne patrons over the past year.

With last nights shooting in the parking lot of Zambuca's Italian Pub Fort Wayne has had it's fair share of night club shootings over the past year.

Going back to last years "two-in-one-night" on May 8th, 2010 when shootings occurred at both Piere's Entertainment Center and Rick O'Shays Irish Pub parking lots.

The incident at Rick O'Shays Irish Pub ended with 20-year-old Hector Tenorio losing his life.

Fast forward just a short while later and there was yet another incident at Rick O'shays. This time, shots were fired inside the club around 1:30AM on November 7th, 2010 leaving 23-year-old Jeffery Moore and 22-year-old Jaquan Gentry fatally wounded.

Less than one month ago there was another shooting at Piere's Entertainment Center that left two people injured.

There is now a man in critical condition after being shot at Zambuca's Italian Pub. This gives us five shootings that have happened in a bar or in a bar parking lot since last May.

Here at, we want each and every patron of Fort Wayne to be able to enjoy themselves when they go out.

Most of all, we want each and every one of you to be safe when you go out.

Do you think bars/clubs/event venues need better security?

It seems like it has come down to pat downs at each entrance to every bar intown. Its just not safe enough to chance letting people into an establishment without cheaking for wepons. Also patdowns are cheaper than metal dectors and do the same job if u have the right security cheaking.
