Officers responded to a fight at a park and found blood and evidence of a shooting, police said.

DALLAS — A large fight at a park in southern Dallas led to two teens being shot, including a 15-year-old boy who died from his injuries early Friday morning. 

Officers responded around 12:30 a.m. to the shooting call at Derek L. Geter Park, at 2322 Scotland Drive, near East Ledbetter Drive and Sunnyvale Street.

When they arrived, the park was empty, but they found blood and other evidence of a shooting, police said. 

A hospital later notified police of two shooting victims who had arrived in private vehicles.

One of the victims, a 15-year-old boy died. The other victim, and 18-year-old man, suffered non-life threatening injuries and is stable in the hospital, police said. 

During the investigation, police learned a fight between two females was arranged through social media. Police said when a group of juveniles arrived at the park for the fight, “everyone began fighting.” The shooting occurred once the large fight broke out.

No arrests have been made.
