On April 13, 2023, at approximately 8:15 p.m., Dallas Police responded to a shooting call in the 5800 block of Highland Hills Drive. When officers arrived, they found the 16-year-old male victim with a gunshot wound. Dallas Fire and Rescue responded and transported the victim to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
The preliminary investigation determined a group of individuals, including the victim and two other male teens, a 15-year-old and 16-year-old, were involved in an argument. A short time later, as the victim and two teens were walking in the street, an unknown suspect shot at them, hitting the victim. The suspect left the location. The two other teenagers were not injured.
The name of the victim and teens will not be released due to their age.
The investigation is ongoing and documented under case number 062640-2023.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Phillip Wheeler at 214-671-3686 or at Phillip.firstname.lastname@example.org.
