FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A business owner opened fire on three men who were on his property at 2 a.m. Saturday, killing a 22-year-old and injuring a 29-year-old, a police spokesman said.
Fort Worth Police Department spokesman Pedro Criado said the business in the 1100 block of South Hughes Ave. had “experienced several burglaries over the past few days.”
The owners stayed at the business overnight, and saw three people on the property at about 2 a.m.
Criado said the owner confronted the three with a shotgun while his wife called 911. The owner saw one of the men “holding a shiny object in his hand” and shot him. The two other men charged the owner, who fired multiple shots, hitting the 29-year-old, Criado said.
The 22-year-old victim died at the scene as the other two fled. The second shooting victim was taken to the hospital in a “private vehicle.” He was soon transferred to a different hospital, Criado said, and is receiving medical care for his wounds. Criado did not reveal his status.
Fort Worth Police have not made any arrests and are still investigating the incident. No one has been identified.
