Woman hit, killed by vehicle as suspect attempted to shoot others, Dallas police say

Police say a man and woman were arguing and the man started shooting when the woman's acquaintance approached. The bystander wasn't involved in the incident.

DALLAS — A man is wanted by police in connection to a deadly hit-and-run that killed a bystander Tuesday morning in southern Dallas.

According to the Dallas Police Department (DPD), the man was arguing with a woman in the 800 block of South Denley Drive near Morrell Avenue at around 1:30 a.m. When the woman's acquaintance came over, that's when the man allegedly pulled out a firearm and started shooting.

The suspect then sped off from the scene and struck another woman before going south on Denley Drive. Police at the scene told WFAA that the other woman was sitting on the curb and had nothing to do with the incident.

Police said the victim was taken to a hospital where she later died. She has not been identified.

No other injuries have been reported. 

It was originally reported that everyone involved fled the scene. Dallas police have since told WFAA that the woman the suspect was shooting at stayed at the scene with her acquaintance.

Dallas police released information about the suspect's vehicle on Thursday. They say he was driving a Black 2017-2018 Hyundai with its front grill missing.

Police are continuing to investigate this incident. Anyone with information can contact Detective D. L. Smith by calling 214-671-0013 or emailing doris.smith@dallascityhall.com.
