Two people were killed and several others injured early Saturday in a shooting outside a Texas dance studio during a party involving a group that the facility’s owner said wasn’t authorized to be there. Officers found one victim dead outside Studio 74 in Fort Worth, and several people were transported to hospitals — one of whom died from his injuries, Fort Worth police spokesman Daniel Segura said in a statement.
Laura Reyna, owner and artistic director of the studio, called it an unauthorized event. She said she didn’t even know the group was there until one of her instructors called her at 12:45 a.m. to report a commotion at the facility.
“I would consider it trespassing just for the fact that as the owner and operator of this facility I did not know, nor was there an exchange of any formal contract for people to be inside there,” said Reyna, who has owned the facility for four years.
