Texas Grandmother Killed By Stray Bullet

Sylvia Salazar, a 56-year-old grandmother, was killed by a stray bullet Sunday at a bar in Fort Worth, Texas.

Police told local ABC affiliate WFAA the shooting occurred after an altercation. According to witnesses, Salazar was not involved with the fight. Four men were also wounded at the North Side Outlaws bar.

WFAA reported Salazar was at the bar because she “stopped for a drink with friends after helping raise money for victims of a house fire.”
