A man was taken to a local hospital early Sunday after an argument turned violent, Fort Worth police said. 

The shooting happened around 3:15 a.m. at The Phoenix Apartments at 429 College Ave. 

According to police at the scene, a woman's ex-boyfriend was trying to get into an apartment gate while arguing with her. 

At some point, police say her brother got involved in the argument and allegedly shot the ex-boyfriend. 

Police said the shooting was possibly in self-defense. The shooter has been taken into custody.

Officials could not say what the man's condition was at the hospital. However, in a letter WFAA obtained that was sent to tenants, building management said one person was killed in the incident.

The letter also said no residents were injured in the "domestic altercation."
