    Police say a woman has been killed and four men wounded Sunday in gunfire at a bar in the Fort Worth Stockyards.

    Fort Worth police on Monday tried to determine a motive for the shootings and whether the person who opened fire is among the injured.

    Officers said the shooting took place at about 8:45 p.m. after an altercation inside the Northside Outlaw Bar on NW 25th Street.  Following the shooting, one of the victims ran from the bar and into the nearby Cadillac Bar and shouted for help.

    Bar staff at the Cadillac Bar called 911.

    The Tarrant County medical examiner's office identified the woman killed as 56-year-old Sylvia Salazar.  Police spokeswoman Sharron Neal told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Salazar was a bystander killed by a stray bullet.

    The four men who were shot were all taken to area hospitals and were said to be in stable condition, according to police.

    Fort Worth police said no one has been arrested in connection with the shooting and that investigators are hoping to gather more information from the surviving victims.

    "Obviously we're concerned that we don't have the person that committed the shooting," said Capt. Scott Conn, with the Fort Worth Police Department. "But we do have information that one of the people at the hospital may have been involved, but we haven't confirmed that, either."
