A 16-year-old boy was shot dead on a street in White Settlement Wednesday morning after exchanging words with someone in a car, White Settlement police said.
After the shooting, the gunman in the car left and fled.
Police from White Settlement arrived at the scene first and began CPR on the boy. Paramedics arrived shortly after and took the teen to a Fort Worth hospital, where he died of his injuries.
The teenager’s name has not been released by authorities. Officials at the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the boy’s name once relatives are notified.
The shooting took place around 4:45 a.m. in the 7600 block of Colton Drive in White Settlement.
The 16-year-old and his 15-year-old brother were strolling around Colton Drive and South Grants Lane.
A man in a white or silver four-door vehicle approached the boys and exchanged words with them, police said.
At one point, the man pulled out a handgun and shot the 16-year-old, hitting him in the chest, White Settlement police said.
The man then drove west and turned onto Ozona Street, police said.
White Settlement Police Chief John Bevering said detectives were investigating the neighborhood and asking anyone with an outdoor camera in the neighborhood where the shooting took place to contact police so she can get a copy of any video evidence.
