Fort Worth House Party Erupts in Gunfire, Leaving 1 Dead, 2 Wounded

1 person is dead, 2 wounded after a disagreement ends in gunfire

One person is dead and two others are wounded after a shooting at a house party in Fort Worth's North Side neighborhood, police say.

Police were called at about 1:30 a.m. to a home in the 1800 block of Gould Avenue, where high school-aged teenagers were reportedly attending a party.

According to police, a disagreement ended with gunfire.

Jose Liandro Hernandez of Granbury died at the scene, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner's office. Police say responding officers found the 20 year old's body in a driveway with a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

Another person was found with a gunshot wound to his arm and was transported to the hospital for treatment. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Fort Worth police confirmed the third victim was privately transported to the hospital after being shot in his upper torso. His injuries are also not believed to be life-threatening.

Dora Chavez lives at the home where the party was hosted. Chavez said it started out small, but eventually grew to 50 or 60 people.

"I guess the other party got raided. They were cooperating and everything, so we allowed them to stay. Out of nowhere, it just got out of hand," Chavez said. "It was doing good for a while. Everybody was doing good. Nobody had problems."

She later heard "four or five" gunshots come from the back of the house. She said she did not know the victims, but said she heard what may have led up to the shooting.

"Whoever was there with them said his friend died over a lighter," she said. "It's kind of crazy how everything happened, especially at my house. I didn't even think this would happen. Never have I been to a party and then this happened."

The suspect, whose description information is not known as of Saturday, reportedly fled the scene after the shooting. No arrests have been made as of this writing.

Homicide detectives are investigating.
