Fight leads to fatal shooting outside West 7th bar
The Fort Worth Police Department says one person died overnight in a shooting outside a popular West 7th Street area bar.
At 1:11am, Fort Worth police officers responded to a shooting near the intersection of Currie Street and Bledsoe Street. Upon arrival, officers located an adult man with a gunshot wound near the El Chingon bar and Mexican restaurant. MedStar transported him to a local hospital, but he was pronounced deceased.
Detectives are still working to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Their investigation has been difficult due to the lack of cooperation by witnesses at the scene; however, investigators believe two adult men got into an argument which led to a physical fight. During the fight, one of the men pulled out a weapon and shot the other. The suspect then fled the scene.
Gun Violence and Homicide units are working to identify the suspect in this case.
The incident remains under investigation.
