Police said about 60 people got into an argument and began fighting in the street. Two groups were involved in the fight: a group of Hurricane Laura evacuees from Port Arthur and a group from Beaumont.
People in each group pulled out a gun, and one of them fired shots, police said.
When police arrived, they found a woman, Amy Lynn Warner, 51, with a gunshot wound. She died at the Dell Seton Medical Center around 1 a.m. Police said Warner was a homeless woman, and they believe she was an innocent bystander.
Quincy Hill, who lives downtown, said the victim was a good person.
"She was a friendly person," Hill said. "She was one of the most nicest people you can ever meet."
