2 Dead, Several Injured After Shooting At Fort Worth Dance Studio

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Two people were killed and several others injured following a shooting at a nonprofit dance studio in Fort Worth, Texas, police said Saturday.

Officers found one victim dead outside Studio 74, and several people were transported to hospitals — one of whom died from his injuries, Fort Worth police spokesman Daniel Segura said in a statement.

It was unclear what time the shooting occurred. Segura said homicide detectives were investigating Saturday morning at the studio, which sits on a state highway near a police station and multiple businesses and restaurants.

Messages left with Fort Worth police and Studio 74 seeking additional information weren’t immediately returned.

Studio 74’s website says the facility brings “dance programming to underserved communities and the general public to reach audiences and participants of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
