The shooting death of a Fort Worth man late Wednesday night is being investigated as a homicide, police say.

Although police did not identify the victim, a family member identified him as Rathel Doddy, 38, who died shortly before 11 p.m., according to the Tarrant County medical examiner's office. In addition, his address matched the location of a shooting call reported to police just minutes earlier.

By Friday morning, the medical examiner had ruled Doddy's death a homicide and listed his cause of death as gunshot wound of chest.

Police arrived at the home in the 900 block of Duff Court in east Fort Worth and found "a male victim with apparent gunshot wounds to his upper body," police spokesman Brad Perez said.

He was transported to John Peter Smith "and was pronounced deceased at the hospital," Perez said. "Homicide detectives are investigating."

Perez said he had no further details about the incident.

Fort Worth Police and the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office are looking for these 10 fugitives. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Call 817-469-8477.

Authorities in Fort Worth are looking for suspects connected to a shooting at the Emerald Hills apartments in west Fort Worth on Sunday evening.

Eyewitness Ralph Crosby describes seeing a man later identified as Kenneth Martin get out of a pickup truck, walk up to a vehicle and shoot into the driver's side window at an intersection near Southlake Town Square on May 31, 2016.
