Two people died from gunshot wounds in separate incidents Monday, one near Justin and the other in Fort Worth.
The first shooting occurred just after 2 p.m. Monday near Justin, in the 1600 block of Baxter Springs Drive, in a neighborhood about a mile north of Northwest High School.
According to a police call log, the person who called in the shooting identified himself as the shooter and said that he still had his gun pointed at “his friend.”
A white male in his late 20s or early 30s was airlifted to John Peter Smith hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead sometime before 7:30 p.m. Police said the victim was shot “in the upper extremities.”
Police arrested the friend, also a white male in his 20s.
Just before 6:30 p.m., another shooting was reported in the 8000 block of Julie Avenue in the Las Vegas Trail area of Fort Worth. Police are seeking a white male suspect who shot a male victim in the face. That victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect fled quickly after the shooting, according to officer Tracy Carter, a Fort Worth police spokesman.
Homicide units were investigating both cases Monday night.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner had not released the identity of either victim as of 9 p.m. Monday.
