FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Police say no one was injured after a man was held at gunpoint before his car was stolen on East Jefferson Boulevard.

Officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department say two men approached another man in a car in the parking lot of Coin Laundry, at 519 E Jefferson Blvd.

The two suspects pointed a gun at the man and told him to get out the car. The man pushed the gun away, which resulted in a shot being fired into the air. Officers say no one was hurt.

The man then got out of his car, and the suspects drove off with it. Police say the car was found in the 2400 block of Central Drive, but the suspects were nowhere to be found.
