Massive Fort Worth party ends in gunfire, arrests

- A massive, wild party ended in gunfire early Sunday morning in south Fort Worth.

There were an estimated 400 people at the party. One man, who didn't want his name used out of fear of retaliation, said minutes after police arrived someone started shooting.

"It was about 15 shots to me that was the shots that I heard. I was in the military so I know about shooting," he said.

Police said only one person was hurt. A man in the crowd was grazed in the head by a bullet. Someone drove him to the hospital. His wound is not life-threatening.

"Some of the officers relocated to the hospital. They connected the victim had been at the same party where officers were," said Fort Worth police officer Daniel Segura.

Police said officers at the scene thought the shots may have been fired at them.

"We don't know if the shots were fired at the officers or into the crowd in general," Segura said.

Police arrested five people ages 18-21 who are facing charges of aggravated assault.

One resident, who also did not want his name used, described the scene as a nightmare with crowds of people everywhere. He said the streets were gridlocked with cars.

"Bunch of cars, music playing, horns blowing at one another you couldn't get through the neighborhood, you couldn't get through," he said.
