A man died after a Sunday night shooting on South Hanna Street, police said.

Fort Wayne police responded at 7:48 p.m. to a call at 2528 S. Hanna St., just north of East Pontiac Street, said Sgt. Mark Brooks, a police spokesman.

The man was found outside and taken to a hospital in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds, Brooks said. The victim, whose name was not released, later died.
