Gunman opened fire in Burleson home, wounding 3 men; 2 women uninjured

A gunman opened fire in a Burleson home early Wednesday, wounding three men, Burleson police said.

Burleson investigators believe the gunman knew at least one of the victims in the house.

The three victims were taken to Fort Worth hospitals in critical condition, according to a MedStar spokesman.

Burleson police responded to the shooting call shortly after 2 a.m. in the 100 block of NE Timber Ridge Drive in Burleson.

“The occupants were not asleep,” said DeAnna Phillips, a spokeswoman for the city of Burleson, in a Wednesday email. “There were three males and two females in the home.”

Officers found the men, ages 21, 27 and 28 with gunshot wounds. Their names have not been released.

The women were not injured in the shooting.

Burleson police said it appeared that one of the women left willingly with the gunman.

Burleson police continued gathering information and pursing leads. No motive for the shooting or description of the gunman has been released.

Neighbors declined to comment Wednesday on the shooting.

Anyone with information should call Detective B. Glass at 817-426-9949 or CrimeStoppers at 817-469-7477.
