A 22-year-old man was shot to death Thursday in Benbrook -- the second homicide in that city this week.
Gary Crenshaw of Fort Worth was shot about 1 p.m. in the parking lot of a town home complex in the 3800 block of Coates Circle, according to authorities.
The earlier homicide happened late Tuesday night at an apartment complex in the 3800 block of Levee Circle. Police, responding to a report of gunfire, found Patrick Danley, 20, dead outside an apartment.
He is William "Louie" Melear, 55, who is suspected of trying to run down a police officer early Thursday in an alley in the Stockyards.
The officer was unhurt.
However, a man believed to be a passenger in the car was wounded by gunfire, either from the officer or a citizen, who thinking the officer had been killed, reached for his own gun and opened fire at the gold four-door Mercedes.
The wounded man was dropped off at a convenience store from a car matching the Mercedes' description, police said. From there he was taken to the hospital.
Police were still looking for Melear Friday afternoon. They could be heard on radio scanners sharing information about the car.
An unidentified man was found gravely wounded shortly before 1 a.m. Friday in east Fort Worth.
The man was found slumped in a car bullet-riddled car on Tarrant Road, police said. He was in critical condition as he was taken to the hospital, but his medical condition was unavailable Friday.
Witnesses told police they saw a gunman running from the scene. Officers arrested a man fitting that description about a half-mile south of the crime scene.
They also found a semiautomatic handgun in some bushes nearby.
