Suspect sought in murder of two men

Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man they believe killed two others near a northeast Dallas apartment complex.

Melvin Louis Jackson was named as a suspect in the murder of Brashaun Boyce and Gerlando Halstid early Sunday morning.

Police responded to a shooting call on the 9700 block of West Ferris Branch Boulevard just after 1 a.m. Halstid, 39, was dead at the scene with a gunshot wound. Boyce, 42, was taken to a hospital where he later died.

After an investigation, it was determined that Jackson was likely responsible for the deaths and a capital murder warrant was issued.

The relationship between Jackson and the victims was not immediately clear.

Anyone with information regarding Jackson’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS (8477).
