At least three people are dead and eight others are wounded after a shooting in Fort Worth, Texas.

The shooting happened just before midnight Monday in the Como neighborhood, hours after the community's annual ComoFest.

Fort Worth Police found multiple shooting victims in a parking lot when they arrived on scene. Several victims were transported by private vehicles to area hospitals, while others were transported via ambulance.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene. The conditions of the eight injured people at hospitals are not known.

It is believed that ten of the victims are adults and one is juvenile, police said. 

An arrest has not yet been made and an investigation remains ongoing.
