A man was shot in the head early Thursday while sitting in a car at an east Fort Worth apartment complex.
Witnesses told Fort Worth police that someone fired several shots from the right rear passenger side of the car, striking the man, 18-24 years old, in the head.
Police responded initially, just before 5 a.m., to a report of shots being fired at Las Mariposas apartment complex, 2010 East Loop 820. They did not find a victim or possible suspects when they arrived.
A second call came in minutes later, reporting that the man had been shot, and that he had been driven to a nearby apartment complex, Sandy Oaks, at 1553 Sandy Lane. The other two occupants of the vehicle led police back to Las Mariposas, where the shooting occurred.
