FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Two 3-year-old children, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old were shot near a store in Fort Worth late Sunday afternoon, police say.
According to police, officers responded to the 5300 block of East Rosedale Street at Smokey’s Paradise Food Mart in regards to a drive-by shooting.
Police say one 3-year-old was shot in the arm and the other was shot in the leg. The 19- and 20-year-olds were shot in the leg as well.
The four victims were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Witness Herman Jones says he was on his way to the store when he heard gunshots ring out. He ducked for cover and said he heard the victims crying after the shooting stopped.
“I was over there playing basketball, and then I just heard the car skirt off when they were shooting. It kind of looked like he stopped to get out of the car. They drove off real fast,” said Jones. “Someone said their baby got hit. That’s how we knew some kids got hit.”
According to police, the suspect fled the scene in a grey Nissan Altima and is described as a black male wearing a grey shirt.
