FORT WORTH, Texas (WFLA) – A group of people stoned a Texas shooter to death with concrete landscaping bricks after he opened fire early Monday morning, killing one person and injuring three others, police said.

Officers responded to a shooting in the 5600 block of Shiloh Drive and found “multiple” gunshot victims.

According to Fort Worth Police, the violence began during what officers described as a small gathering in a backyard where a man became upset with other attendees.

The man, who wasn’t identified, left the party and returned soon after armed with a gun. He then got into an argument with multiple people and opened fire, injuring one person.

The gunman was chased away by people attending the party and began shooting at the group as others threw concrete landscaping bricks at him, police said.

Police said, at some point, the shooter was caught by the group and either fell or was taken down to the ground. But the gunman continued to fire, striking at least two more people.

The gunman and a shooting victim were pronounced dead at the scene; three other people who were shot in the bloody altercation were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Authorities had not released any identities as of Monday afternoon.
