    Two were killed and five others were hospitalized after a shooting in Fort Worth late Friday night.

    A witness, Ethel Love, reported hearing dozens of shots from multiple guns on Davis Avenue, near New York Avenue in Fort Worth, close to I-35W.

    Gunfire in this area is "a regular thing," said Love. "I've been staying on Davis street since 1972 and seven people have passed away and I'm just... really tired of it."

    The deceased have since been identified as Ramsez Hall and Shemeka Rodriguez - the daughter of East Fort Worth Neighborhood Coalition President Melinda Hamilton.
