3 shot, including a child, at Dallas gas station

- A child was one of three people shot at a Dallas gas station early Thursday morning.

The shooting happened around 4:45 a.m. at the Friendly’s convenience store on Harry Hines Boulevard near west Northwest Highway.

Police said a man, a woman and a 9-year-old child pulled up in a red truck to fill up with gas and grab a coffee.

The man got into an argument with two other men who made comments about the woman. He allegedly told them to leave hear alone and pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Witness Luis Lorado said he heard the pops, but initially thought it was a tire being changed.

"We looked and I saw this like chubby gentleman running around, but I did not really get a good look because I figured they were just playing around right? Until I heard the second and third and I was like yo, we have to go," Lorado said.

The man suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach. The woman was hit in the face and the 9-year-old was shot in the leg. All have non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The two suspects drove off going westbound on Northwest Highway. Police described their vehicle as a brown or tan Toyota Camry that is missing the right front hubcap. The vehicle also has right front fender damage.

The men did go into the store before the confrontation. Police hope surveillance video will help identify them and paint a picture of what happened.
