A woman died Friday night after she was shot in the torso outside an east Fort Worth convenience store, police said.

The woman was gunned down outside Eastwood Food Mart, in the 4200 block of Wilbarger Street, by an assailant firing from the passenger seat of a white vehicle at about 5:15 p.m., a witness said.

The woman had a bag of chips with her when she was shot, the witness, a store employee, said. Other people were also outside the store.

“She tried to run,” the employee said.

Police had not arrested a suspect in the killing as of Saturday evening, police spokesman Officer Brad Perez said.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office had not released the victim’s name or age Saturday.

The victim died at a hospital. Early reports suggested someone performed CPR on her at the scene, a MedStar spokeswoman said.
