A victim was found shot in East Fort Worth on Sunday night, and several reports of shots fired were called in to police shortly afterward, Fort Worth police reported.

At 10:01 p.m., an individual called police and reported that an unknown person had been shot at the intersection of East Rosedale Street and Stalcup Road, police said.

A male was shot in the right forearm and hip at an unknown location and driven to this location by friends, according Fort Worth police spokesman Curtis Wadlington.

Medstar was dispatched to the location shortly after, and the male victim was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital for medical treatment.

The victim was reported to be in serious condition, Wadlington said.

Minutes later, at 10:09 p.m., another call of shots fired was reported in the 5400 block of East Berry Street, which is less than 2 miles south of where the first shooting was reported.

Two separate individuals called police and stated that they heard between 20 and 25 gunshots near East Berry Street. They told police that several individuals were riding up and down the street firing guns, police said.

At 10:17 p.m., a woman called police and reported that five minutes earlier, she thought she heard gunshots and shortly afterward, found damage in her home. The woman found that a gunshot had gone through a wall in her home, police reported.

Police had not stated as of Sunday night whether any of the shots-fired calls were related to the initial shooting at the intersection of East Rosedale Street and Stalcup Road. Police said that details are still developing as they try to determine what led to this shooting.

Two men were fighting and one pulled a gun and fired, according to police. A man who was wounded and who was suspected to survive, was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital.
