In a tragic incident late Monday night, at least three people were killed and eight others were injured in a mass shooting in Fort Worth, Texas. The shooting took place at a large parking lot gathering attended by several hundred people, and the police were called to the scene. Upon arrival, they found multiple victims with gunshot wounds, and unfortunately, three individuals were pronounced dead immediately. The conditions of the eight injured victims are currently unknown.
Initial reports indicate that ten of the shooting victims are adults, while one is a juvenile. The ages of the deceased have not been disclosed. The Fort Worth Police Department has urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact their Homicide Unit or Crime Stoppers.
Parallel to this tragic event, authorities in Texas have made a disturbing discovery. The Texas Department of Public Safety recently recovered a series of dead bodies washed ashore in the Rio Grande. Two bodies were found on July 1, another on July 2, and one more on July 3. The identities of the deceased have not yet been determined.
As of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the mass shooting in Fort Worth, and the police are actively investigating the incident. It is still unclear how many shooters were involved in this tragedy.
These distressing events have shaken the community, occurring shortly after the conclusion of the neighborhood's annual ComoFest. The impact of such acts of violence on the affected families and the wider community cannot be overstated.
The Texas Department of Public Safety continues to monitor the situation and has deployed its Tactical Marine Unit to recover bodies, including that of an infant, from the Rio Grande River in Eagle Pass. The authorities are working diligently to identify the remains and bring closure to the families affected by these tragic circumstances.
Our thoughts go out to the victims and their loved ones during this difficult time.
