An unidentified man was shot and killed after he confronted a man in the parking lot of a motel in east Fort Worth, police say.

The suspect remains at large and the investigation is ongoing.

The shooting happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of a motel at 3105 S. Riverside Drive, police Capt. Todd Wadlington said.

The victim and a woman were arguing in the parking lot, Wadlington said. The victim confronted the suspect, who was standing nearby and pulled a gun and shot him. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, Wadlington said.

Police dispatched almost two dozen units to the crime scene over the course of Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Homicide detectives were interviewing witnesses in hopes of identifying the shooter, Wadlington said.

Fort Worth police are looking for two suspects they say shot a gun in the direction of an employee during a convenience store robbery on Belknap street on Nov. 29.
