Leader of Faegre Baker Daniels Office in Ft. Wayne, Ind., Is Shot at His Home

David J. Kuker, a 45-year-old corporate and commercial real estate lawyer who leads the Ft. Wayne, Ind., office of Faegre Baker Daniels, is in serious condition after being shot at his home Tuesday morning.

Nearby schools were on lockdown for a short time after the 8 a.m. incident, reports the News-Sentinel.

Another News-Sentinel article says authorities believe Kuker was attacked and sprayed in the face by someone in the attached garage of his home, then was shot as he tried to escape.

A neighbor called 911 after seeing him lying in his front yard asking for help.

The law firm said in a statement provided to the Ft. Wayne Journal Gazette that his injuries are not life-threatening. He has been with Faegre Baker since 1995.

City police say the motive for the attack is unknown and could not provide a description of the suspect. An investigation is continuing.
