One person was killed and another was injured in a shooting along Highway 183 in Southwest Fort Worth.

Fort Worth Police say a woman was driving west on 183 just before 2:30 Thursday morning.

Police were called about a shooting on the highway, just west of the split from Interstate 20, at 2:24 a.m. They say a woman was driving a car with two male passengers. Police say the woman was being followed.

Police say someone in the other car started shooting into the woman's car. She was struck and killed. One of the men in the car was injured but was stable when he was taken to the hospital.

Westbound 183 was closed until about 9:15 Thursday morning while police investigated. They say a shooting reported along a freeway at 2:30 a.m. would be occurring when few others would be on the road.

"That could work in our favor or against our favor," says Officer Brad Perez. "There would be less traffic at that time, but it might be easier for someone to observe something occur."

Police are asking anyone who saw strange driving or behavior along I-20 or 183 early Thursday to call them. They have not made any arrests or identified suspects.
