At least 4 dead in Dallas-area shootings
DALLAS (AP) - A series of shootings in the Dallas area killed at least four people and wounded others, but authorities said early Thursday that a suspect was in custody.
Police were first called to a home in southwest Dallas around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday where they found four gunshot victims, two of whom had died, Dallas police Sgt. Warren Mitchell told media outlets.
The suspect in that shooting fled to nearby DeSoto, where he was involved in another shooting, Mitchell said.
At the second location, four other people were shot at a home, with two of them dying, DeSoto police Cpl. Melissa Franks said.
Franks said police took the suspect into custody without incident at the house where the second shooting happened.
Authorities said the suspect is a man but have not released any other information about him. Franks said police were also trying to determine what connection the suspect had to the victims. He was brought to a jail in DeSoto.
