College Student Murdered in Fort Worth Fight Involving 50 People: Police

The fight happened around 9 p.m. Sunday, police said

An 18-year-old college student was shot and killed at a south Fort Worth apartment complex Sunday night after someone pulled out a gun during a fight involving as many as 50 people, police say.

Donnie Evans Jr., a freshman at Tyler Junior College, was killed at the Sycamore Pointe Apartments in the 8000 block of Joshua Drive, his family said.

Officers were called to a fight at about 9 p.m. involving 50 people.

When they arrived, they found Evans dead on the scene. A second man who had been shot showed up at a nearby hospital and he was listed in serious condition, police said.

Nobody has been arrested and a suspect has not been named.

Evans ran track in high school, his family said. His coach told NBC 5 he was beloved.

"Donnie was an exceptional kid, great personality, got along with everybody," said former Hallmark track coach Keisha Braziel Davis. "It's such a big hurt for the community because a lot of people really loved him."
