18 shot, 5 killed across Dallas and Fort Worth during violent weekend

A single shooting left eight people injured, including two children, Dallas police said.

DALLAS — Updated Monday with additional information from police and additional shootings. 

At least eight shootings took place across Dallas over the weekend, leaving at least 14 people wounded and at least three dead. In Fort Worth, police are investigating four shootings that led to two men being killed. 

One of the shootings left eight people injured, including two children, one age 15, the other a 10-year-old. 

In Fort Worth Sunday, police say a child custody incident led to a man being shot and killed in the 7400 block of Beaty Street. He was later identified as 25-year-old Cameron Miller by county officials.

The day before on Saturday, officers found a man shot and killed in a front yard on the 7000 block of Woodmoor Road.

“A lot of factors going into this and people honestly just needing to learn to communicate with each other," Fort Worth police department spokesperson Tracy Carter said. “This is not just about the police department. This is about us working together with the community on how we can get this stopped."

In Dallas, non-violence activist Antong Lucky runs Urban Specialists, which mentors youth and teaches conflict resolution. 

“The ages are dropping lower. You’re seeing kids are being shot and killed. We have to step up and we have to say something about the violence," Lucky said. “Violence in Dallas is a citywide problem and that we all have a part to play in stopping the violence that we are seeing."

Below is a look at how the violence ensued across the cities throughout the weekend.
