FORT WORTH- A shooting at Studio 74, a Texas dance studio, left two dead and at least 4 others injured during a party Saturday around midnight.

Laura Reyna, owner of the studio, said she was unaware of the gathering 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.

"I'm very heartfelt for the family and victims," Reyna, who has owned the facility for four years, said. "This is a place, it's a nonprofit organization. We deal in hip hop culture and we cater to our community. It's a safe haven ... we dance, we compete. We try to stay away from events like this that happen."

Mark Povero, a spokesman for the Fort Worth Police Department, told The Associated Press arrests will be made soon and that officials believe gang activity was a factor in the shooting.
