FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A SWAT team is on the scene at a apartment complex in Fort Worth where shots have been fired. Police initially went to the complex, in the 2900 block of Broadmoor Drive, in response to a person with a weapon call.
A woman had called 911 and speaking in a whisper told dispatch that there was a man with a gun inside an apartment.
A 62-year-old woman was shot and killed while she was riding in a vehicle with her husband on Tuesday evening, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. The couple was driving near the intersection of Old Greenhouse Road and Windy Stone Drive, in northwest Harris County, when the woman was struck by at least one bullet, authorities said.
