Dallas police are working to identify the person who shot a man outside a Quik Trip gas station Wednesday afternoon.
The shooting happened just after 4:15 p.m., when the suspect got into an argument with another man at the QT located in the 4700 block of S. R.L. Thornton Fwy.
The suspect then left the store and waited outside, before confronting the other man when he went to his vehicle.
Police say a suspect who used a child as a human shield during a hostage situation at a Fort Worth apartment Thursday afternoon has died.
Officers were called out just before 12 p.m. for a person with a weapon call at the 2900 Broadmoor Apartments.
A woman called 911 and was whispering that there was a person inside the apartment with a gun, and there were at least three other people inside, including children.
