FORT WORTH, Texas - Police in Fort Worth, Texas, were searching for suspects in two separate shootings that occurred about the same time during the weekend.

In the first shooting, which took place early Saturday, several gang members kicked, punched and shot a man in the leg for not wearing the proper gang colors, said police spokesman Lt. Paul Henderson. The group then tried to set the man on fire, The Dallas Morning News reported.

The man was taken to an area hospital where his condition was unknown.

About 10 minutes after the first shooting, a man was shot in the leg by a person parked in a car at the Sahara Palms Apartments, said Henderson.

The victim's girlfriend drove him to Harris Methodist Medical Center.
