A gunman who opened fire at a party Monday morning in Texas, fatally killing one person, has died after attendees hit him with bricks, authorities said.
The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when a participant got angry and left, the city’s police department said in a statement.
The person, identified by a Fort Worth Police spokesperson only as a male, then returned with a second person and had an argument with other revelers. The man opened fire, hitting a person and causing a non-life threatening injury, the statement said.
When the party started chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were shot, including one fatal, police said. The second person was taken to a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
The shooter was repeatedly struck with at least one brick and pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.
The department said the identity of the shooter would be disclosed by the medical examiner’s office.
