FORT WORTH -- Fabian Guerrero had started to change his life, his grieving sister said Monday.
After years of staying out late and partying, and even being shot at a party last fall, the 21-year-old had begun a new job as metal roofer in Paris a few days ago and had become more involved in the life of his 5-month-old son, Adrianna Guerrero said.
But that all came to a sudden end Sunday night.
Guerrero and his girlfriend, Diane Guerra, 22, were killed in a drive-by shooting in far south Fort Worth.
"We just don't know why," Adrianna Guerrero said. "He had texted me that he would be home by 10. They were going to drop off his friends and then he would be home."
Police estimated that at least 11 rounds were fired into the vehicle.
No one had been arrested as of Monday, and police provided no additional details.
Guerrero, who was driving a white Toyota, and Guerra, the front-seat passenger, were pronounced dead about 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the scene, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner's office. Guerra, of River Oaks, died of gunshot wounds to her shoulder, and Guerrero, of Fort Worth, died of a gunshot wound to the back.
"They all had been at a car show in Dallas during the day," Adrianna Guerrero said. "They came back to Fort Worth and ate."
Two other passengers were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. One man was shot several times in the lower body, police said, but his injuries were not life-threatening. The other man was injured when the car crashed. Another passenger was uninjured.
Authorities have not said what prompted the shooting, but they didn't believe that it was gang-related.
"The uninjured man isn't giving us much information," police Capt. Kevin Rodricks said Sunday. "He wasn't sure what type of vehicle drove up beside them."
Police said the victims had left a Hooters near Hulen Street, drove onto Interstate 20, turned south onto I-35W and exited onto a service road at Sycamore School Road.
The uninjured man told police that they were on the service road when he heard numerous gunshots hit the car.
After Guerrero was shot, the car veered up an embankment, hit a concrete barrier, rolled down and came to rest in a median in front of the Teaching Word Faith Center.
Within minutes, dozens of relatives and friends rushed to the scene and waited on news from officers.
Authorities closed the service road at Sycamore School Road for more than three hours to search for shell casings.
Adrianna Guerrero said Monday that her brother wasn't in a gang but had been around gang members at parties and similar situations.
On Oct. 23, Guerrero was at a party on Frazier Avenue in Fort Worth when one or more gunmen sprayed a house with bullets, killing Christina Davila, 21. Guerrero was shot in the foot.
"I told him that he shouldn't have been out late, and I think he was trying to change after that happened to him," Adrianna Guerrero said.
