FORT WORTH, Texas – A group of people stoned a shooter to death with concrete blocks early Monday morning, Fort Worth police said. The officers responded to a shooting in Block 5600 of Shiloh Drive and found “several” gunshot victims.
The police were told that there was a gathering in the back yard of a house. Someone got upset, left, and then came back. After an argument, the same participant who left and returned “shot at least one person,” the police said.
Other people at the party started chasing after the shooter.
“The shooter turned around and shot at other people,” said the police. “One group picked up concrete blocks for landscaping and began ‘throwing’ them at the shooter.”
Police said the shooter was caught by the group at some point and either fell or was knocked down. But the shooter kept firing.
A victim of the shooting was pronounced dead at the scene. Another victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said the shooter who was hit by the landscape stones was pronounced dead at the scene.
