FORT WORTH — There were multiple victims after gunfire at the Fort Worth Stockyards Sunday evening.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. outside the North Side Outlaws bar at 115 NW 25th Street.

"The first thing I heard was like fireworks, so I guess those were shots," said Patrick Booths, who works across the street at the Stockyards Hotel. "Then, all of a sudden, you start hearing a whole bunch of sirens and people running around. It was a lot of bikers and stuff like that across the street, so it looked like it was a brew for... the perfect storm for some troubles, that's what I was thinking."

MedStar said paramedics transported a total of three people to area hospitals. A woman in her 50s was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in very critical condition; a man in serious condition went to JPS and another man was rushed to Texas Health Fort Worth Hospital, also in serious condition.

There was no information available about what led to the shootings or whether there is a suspect at large.

"It was a pretty crazy night, I gotta tell you," Booths said.
