FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Police arrested 24-year-old Jaime Marsee in connection with Thursday's domestic-dispute turned homicide incident. Marsee was charged with charges of Aggravated Battery, Battery with a Deadly Weapon, Domestic Battery.
What started off as a call for a pedestrian struck turned into a domestic dispute-homicide investigation Thursday. Fort Wayne Police and other first responders were called out to a critical injury crash involving a pedestrian Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of Midwest Pipe & Steel.
Around 2:45 p.m., someone called police to report a man who had been struck in the parking lot at 2100 E. Pontiac Street. Police say employees took the man inside their workplace and attempted to save his life.
The man has since died. Thursday evening, a FWPD spokesperson said the matter is classified a homicide.
"We were able to find that female after several attempts to stop several vehicles that looked like the one we were looking for, we did eventually find her.," FWPD Public Information Officer, Sofia Rosales-Scatena said. "We are trying to talk to witnesses and anyone who may have seen this occur and find out what happened."
Police tell ABC 21 that Marsee, first called a person-of-interest, was reached by phone, then located near Lake and Delta, where police also found the vehicle involved in the incident. From there, she was taken into custody for questioning.
The 24-year-old Jaime Marsee is now in the Allen County Jail and will be arraigned in court tomorrow.
Officers said the matter was not related to the nearby business.
