FORT WORTH, Texas — Three people were injured in a shooting in the West 7th area of Fort Worth early Sunday morning, police said.

Their conditions were unknown later Sunday morning, and police were still investigating.

Officers were notified about 2:10 a.m. that several people had been shot in the West 7th area, a popular bar and restaurant area west of downtown Fort Worth. 

Offices “located several victims” near Norwood and Bledsoe streets, one block east of University Boulevard, according to a police news release. Police confirmed that there were three victims in the shooting. 

They were taken to the hospital and their conditions were not known. One witness said a victim was shot in the leg and was released from the hospital.

No one had been arrested in the shooting, as of Sunday morning. 

A witness spoke to WFAA and said he was just feet away from the shooting.

“We saw people running from over there, and over there, we thought fireworks,” Vints Arias said.

“This is nuts. The neighborhood is normally chill,” Arias added.

Another witness, Trey Lockhard, said he saw aftermath and captured some of it on his cell phone. He said the area was packed due to the SMU vs. TCU football game.

“With all the football stuff, SMU was out here, Arkansas fans, A&M fans,” Lockhard said.
