FORT WORTH — Six people, including four children, were injured in a drive-by shooting Tuesday night in Fort Worth.

Fort Worth Fire Department and MedStar officials say the shooting was reported around 7:30 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Las Vegas Trail. 

"It makes me sick to my stomach," said Fort Worth Police Chief Neil Noakes. "It pisses me off. I've said many times—It makes me angry and mad."  

All four children were taken to Cook Children's Hospital for treatment. One of the adults was taken to another area hospital but the second adult did not want to go. The victims' conditions were not immediately provided. 

"There's no reason anyone should be conducting themselves in such a violent dangerous way that children should be shot and, unfortunately, that's what we're dealing with, that someone chose to do something that stupid," Noakes continued.

Authorities are trying to determine a motive in the ongoing investigation. The suspect is not in custody.
