A male victim is dead and another is in the hospital after a double shooting in southeast Fort Worth on Monday night.

Officers were dispatched to a shooting call around 7:15 p.m. at Miller Avenue and Martin Street, where they found a crime scene. Police spokesman Jimmy Pollozani could not elaborate on what was found. Around the same time, officers also responded to the 3400 block of Childress Street near U.S. 287 on another shots-fired call, police said.

The two crime scenes apparently were connected, police said.

On the second call, police found a vehicle on the sidewalk and one victim dead with an apparent gunshot wound to his upper torso. A second victim in his upper teens was found with apparent gunshot wounds to his upper torso and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police said he was in surgery around 2:30 a.m. but his condition was unknown early Tuesday.

No further information was available. Homicide detectives are investigating.
