DALLAS — Dallas police said an innocent bystander was shot and killed Saturday night outside the sprawling Escapade 2001 nightclub on Stemmons Freeway.

Police spokesman Sgt. Warren Mitchell said 23-year-old Jose Avila of Dallas was in the parking lot of the Northwest Dallas club at 9:38 p.m. when a disturbance broke out nearby and shots were fired.

Avila was hit by a bullet and died at the scene.

Mitchell said Avila was apparently not part of the disturbance and was not the gunman's intended target.

The suspect fled; police provided no description.
