Gunfire wounds man and hits cars
By DEANNA BOYDSTAR-TELEGRAM STAFF WRITERFORT WORTH

- A 20-year-old man was shot several times with an automatic weapon early Thursday while inside a car in east Fort Worth.
Lt. Dean Sullivan, a police spokesman, said a call came in around 2:45 a.m. about shots being fired in the 3400 block of Thannisch Avenue.
While officers were responding, a call came in about a gunshot victim in a car at Martin Luther King Freeway and Mitchell Boulevard, Sullivan said.
At the intersection, officers found no gunshot victim but a 1990 brown Chevrolet Caprice riddled with 14 bullet holes and with blood inside, Sullivan said.
At a home on Thannisch, police found more evidence of a shooting, including a 1993 Mazda damaged by gunfire, bullet holes in the house and shell casings in the street, apparently from an automatic weapon.
Sullivan said a tree at the residence appeared to have been struck by a car.
As police were examining the two crime scenes, officers received word that a man had shown up at John Peter Smith Hospital with gunshot wounds in his head and upper torso, Sullivan said.
Sullivan said the injured man, who is expected to survive, is believed to have been a passenger in the Caprice. Police are investigating reports that a carload of men fired on the Caprice.
"We are attempting to locate the driver in fear that he may be injured as well," he said.

Must be those special automatic weapon bullets
