What was supposed to be a night of fun ended in tragedy early Sunday morning in Fort Worth?
“While they were running, the bullets continued, and they ran away,” says a neighbor from the 1900 block of Carver Street east of Fort Worth.
Police arrived at the scene after one in the morning and confirmed that a fight sparked the shooting that left a person dead in place and another who died from his injuries in the hospital and three wounded.
Mandy Mobley, who lives in the house behind where it all happened, says that more than 30 shots were heard from various weapons, pistols, and rifles and that when she approached the scene it was creepy.
” It looked like a war scene, ” he says, with people dead and wounded on the floor.
Traces of the meeting still remained in the house, thrown chairs, broken bottles, and traces of blood.
One of the fatal victims was identified as 21-year-old Luis Manuel Hernández.
“We are in shock”
Luis’s family still does not believe that this has happened, they remember him as a happy and familiar young man.
“He liked being with us, he had a Colgate smile. We will always miss him, ”said his brother-in-law Carlos González.
His mother María preferred not to talk about Luis but told us that he was her only son
“We still can’t believe it, it’s sad to know how everything happened, but we have to think positively and support her mother and her family,” said one of her cousins.
Neighbors assure that nothing similar had ever happened in the place, where this Sunday they woke up with scissors and gauze on the floor that paramedics used to help the victims.
The police told us that there are no detainees because they are still investigating how the events occurred and who fired.
