Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Formal charges are now filed in that crime spree from last weekend involving a stabbing, shooting injuries and a shot-up ambulance.

Fort Wayne Police say the stabbing happened after a fight at Piere's Nightclub early Sunday morning.

That led to relatives of the victim following the ambulance to the hospital.

Fort Wayne Police say a "third" vehicle approached shooting into that car and the ambulance, hitting people and the ambulance 17-times!

Allen County Police chased-down the suspects arresting three men.

Several charges are now filed against the alleged gunman, 24-year-old Traneilous Jackson.

He faces four-counts of attempted murder, one-count of battery in connection with a shooting-wound to a medic, located inside the ambulance and one-count of suspected gang activity.

On October third, Jackson will learn when his trial will be set.
