After a shooting on Saturday night in Fort Worth’s West 7th neighborhood, a 29-year-old man passed away.

What Happened?

Bryson Rodgers was found suffering from a gunshot wound when Fort Worth police officers arrived on the scene of a shooting at approximately 10:15 p.m. in the 2900 block of Crockett Street. Before police came, the shooting suspect ran away. Despite being sent to a hospital for care, Rodgers did not make it.

After yet another fatal shooting, residents of Fort Worth’s West 7th entertainment district are growing more worried for their safety.

Cause Of Death

Zada Trejo, a resident of West 7th, stated, “Hearing about shootings makes us wonder if it’s even safe to walk around our neighborhood.” “When we saw all the police cars on the street when we got home, we were concerned about what had happened. Who knows, maybe we might have been strolling.”In September, Wes Smith, a TCU student, was shot and died in the same location.

In response, the city upgraded West 7th’s security and safety measures, including extra off-duty police officers and lighting. In addition, the city council modified the zoning code to mandate conditional use permits for any new or growing bars that are bigger than 2,000 square feet.

The city unveiled a new initiative in January to improve safety in the entertainment district: ambassadors would patrol the area late at night, offering assistance and alerting authorities to any suspicious activity.
