A shooting at a private party outside an event center left six young people injured early Sunday, police said.

Police continued their search for suspects Sunday night.

Patrol officers responded to a shooting call about 1:15 a.m. in the 3600 block of Sycamore School Road outside of the Joy Life Center. On its Facebook page, the center indicates that it’s a facility for weddings, receptions, quinceaneras and corporate meetings.

On Sunday morning, a church service was being held at the center, in far south Fort Worth.

“Five adult males and one adult female were shot following a fight that started at a private party inside of the location and continued to the parking lot,” police Cpl. Tracey Knight said in an email Sunday.

At the scene, officers found a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound, and he was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

“Officers were later notified that a second shooting victim, an 18-year-old female, had shown up at another hospital,” police Lt. Gary Reynolds said in an email Sunday.

She was in stable condition at the hospital with a non-life-threatening wound, police said.

About an hour later, police were notified that three other victims had shown up at a Dallas hospital, but their wounds were not life-threatening.

At 4 a.m., another adult male who had been shot on Sycamore School Road arrived at a Dallas hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
