Woman found with gunshot wound in Fort Worth after reported shooting

A woman was found in a street in southeast Fort Worth early Tuesday morning with a gunshot wound to the leg after a reported shooting, police said.

She was taken to a hospital, police said, with non-life-threatening injuries. Officers were responding to the reported shooting about 2:20 a.m. in the 1400 block of East Allen Avenue when they found the woman, police said.

A person had shot the woman while passing by in a vehicle, according to Officer Brad Perez, a police spokesman.

There’s no suspect information at this time.

According to media reports, police were investigating whether road rage could have played a role in the incident, as it appeared a crash preceded the shooting.

But Perez said “this does not sound like road rage.”

“Upon reading the narrative,” he said, “this report sounds like it could go several different directions as far as the investigation.”
