One dead, two arrested after shooting behind Fort Worth shopping center
Fort Worth police arrested two shooting suspects after they ran and attempted to hide inside Hulen Mall.
The shooting happened behind a shopping center at Hulen Street and South Drive, but the two were captured inside of the mall midday Thursday after witnesses saw them and called police.
The two men were found in the bathroom of a clothing store near the food court and were trying to disguise themselves by changing clothes, police said. The men didn’t resist and were arrested. One of them had a handgun.
Police say the person the suspects shot at died at the hospital. Witnesses saw him stumble and collapse near the intersection of Hulen and South.
People who tried to help him at the scene saw at least one gunshot wound on his neck.
“He had been shot in the neck and bleeding from his neck so bad it covered his whole abdomen,” said witness Chris Lawson. “Plain white t-shirt covered in blood, everybody ran over to help him.”
Police are investigating witness reports that the victim may have been shot twice.
Crime scene investigators could be seen Thursday afternoon looking over a car not far from where the victim was found. Detectives are examining how the car is connected to the shooting.
The names of the two people arrested have not been released.
