Three people were shot early Sunday in Fort Worth just after bars closed in a popular neighborhood, police say.

According to Fort Worth police, officers were working in the West 7th Bar area when they were notified that several individuals had been shot shortly after 2 a.m., just as bars closed and hundreds filled the street.

Police said when officers arrived, they found three victims suffering from apparent gunshot wounds near Norwood and Morton streets.

"It's just scary. It's, like, crazy, it's one thing when you hear it but when you see it it makes it more real," said Victoria, who said she lives nearby and was awakened by the gunfire.

Video shared on social media showed the crowd scrambling after shots rang out.

"It's probably a lot of innocent bystanders that probably got hit," said Trey Lockhart who says he was at a bar nearby.

Investigators focused on a parking garage and the street in front of it, where the door of a business -- shattered by a bullet -- is now boarded up.

The victims were transported to area hospitals in unknown conditions.

According to police, no suspects were in custody Sunday.

Police said this incident was still under investigation.
