A man was in critical condition after being shot in a south Fort Worth neighborhood, authorities said.

Police are searching for suspects.

The shooting was reported shortly after 12:30 p.m. at in the 3500 block of Park Lake Drive near McCart Avenue.

A man who lives near where the shooting occurred said his wife witnessed it from inside their house.

She said a man was walking along Park Lake Drive toward McCart Avenue when a second man began walking toward him. That man came from across a turf bridge along the river near the Red Rock Apartments complex.

She said the second man walked up to the first man and shot him once in the head. Then the gunman walked back across the bridge toward Red Rock Apartments, she told her husband.

The victim fell into the street, across from a small park.

Police blocked the entrance to the apartment complex and a portion of Park Lake Drive.

The name and age of the victim had not been released, but MedStar officials reported he was an adult.
