DALLAS - A drive-by shooting injured six people in a neighborhood in South Dallas overnight. One of the wounded is an elderly woman.
The shooting happened around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 3,000 block of South Boulevard, which is just west of Fair Park.
Police said someone in a large sedan, possibly a Mercury Marquis, opened fire with a high-powered rifle. Five people were wounded.
Most of the victims were outside at the time of the shooting. Police said one was wounded by a bullet that entered an apartment.
Two of the six victims are currently in surgery. The youngest is a 14-year-old who is in critical condition, police said.
Family and friends told FOX 4 one of the victims is 74-year-old Jewel Brown. They said she is conscious and alert. Her daughter said she was an innocent bystander and shot in the chest.
Another victim is 21-year-old Dquyan Robinson. He was shot six times and lost one of his kidneys, family members said.
“All I kept on saying was, ‘God don’t’ take him from me. Don’t do it.’ And I kept on saying, ‘You strong. You got this. You got this. You strong. You thick. You big. You got it,’” said Brandi Harrison, his sister.
Family and friends have reportedly gathered at the hospital to hold hands and pray together. They’re also hoping the suspects are caught.
Police said they are actively investigating the case. They ask anyone with information to call Det. Contreras at 214-671-3085.
