Victims in Fort Worth mass shooting identified

- Families are asking why two people were killed Friday in a mass shooting in south Fort Worth.

The dead victims have been identified as 30-year-old Ramsez Hall and 32-year-old Shameka Rodriguez. Five other people were wounded.

Police said someone fired dozens of rounds outside a home in the Morningside neighborhood off Davis and New York Streets around 11 p.m. Friday.

Rodriguez’s biological mother and the mother who raised her are angry. They don’t understand the point of the gun violence.

"How could somebody do a person like this?" asked Melinda Hamilton, the woman raised Rodriguez. “Why? What was the purpose? Back in the days, we had an argument, we fight. We’re friends. We didn’t pick up guns. We fought with our hands.”

“I’m angry. I’m angry because she’s so young. She didn’t deserve to die the way she died,” added Josie Zuniga, her biological mother.

These two mothers said Rodriguez was happy, strong and independent, and she did not deserve to be murdered in the middle of a street.

Police have not publicly identified the suspects and have not discussed a motive.
