    The sheriff's department confirmed late Monday morning that a 911 call was received at 6:36 a.m. and that one person has died after being shot.

    The name of the victim has not yet been confirmed.

    Investigators with the sheriff's department won't say whether they are searching for a shooter and would only confirm that they were called to a shooting of some kind.

    According to CareFlite, they were dispatched to an area near Farm-to-Market Road 3136 and Park Lane in Alvarado early Monday morning.  Once there, they picked up a patient and transported the person to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.

    It is not yet clear if the person confirmed to have died is the same who was hospitalized in Fort Worth.
