An 18-year-old woman who was shot in the head and neck at a party Wednesday night has “a severe, possibly permanent injury to her neck,” police said Thursday.

Forest Hill police were looking for the person who shot Mashana Henderson during a party at a residence in the 6800 block of Trailwood Drive, Police Chief Dan Dennis said in a news release.

About 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, dispatchers received several 911 calls about a shooting at a house where “a large number of teenagers” were at a party.

Many of them left before police arrived, Dennis said.

Henderson was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. “Detectives have been advised that Ms. Henderson is in stable condition but has suffered severe, possibly permanent injury to her neck,” Dennis said in the news release.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the shooting or who has information about it to call Forest Hill police at 817-531-5250.
