Man dead after argument in Haltom City

HALTOM CITY -- A man was shot to death Thursday morning after getting into an argument with another man, police said.

The victim, who was not identified, was shot several times at about 6:45 a.m. as he stood outside his truck in the 4200 block of Janada Street near a warehouse, and near the intersection with Tracy Drive.

"We don't know why they stopped where they did or what they were arguing about," Haltom City police Sgt. Terry Stayer said. "No one at the warehouse knew them."

Witnesses from the warehouse told police that they heard two men arguing as they stood near a truck and a car. At some point, one of the men pulled out a gun and fired the weapon, police said.

The shooter got into his car and drove away, police said.

Police had not located the gunman or his car. Investigators believe he was driving a white, silver or light-colored Kia.

Police said they questioned two North Oaks Middle School students who heard the gunshots while at football practice.

Administrators with the Birdville school district notified parents by phone that police had declared the campus safe and that the shooting had nothing to do with the school.
