Police broke down the doors of at least two apartments at a complex in Far East Dallas as they investigated a murder.

Neighbors at the complex on North Buckner Boulevard near Ferguson Road reported hearing a lot of gunfire early Tuesday morning.

Responding officers found a man dead inside one of the apartments. They identified him as 36-year-old Elroy Taylor. They also found more than 20 shell casings on the ground.

“Detectives are currently canvassing the area for witnesses,” said Sr. Cpl. DeMarquis. “We do ask for anyone with information regarding this shooting to please contact the Dallas Police Department. If you have any information, please come forward. We need your help.”

So far, investigators are not releasing much information about the case, a possible motive or a suspect description.
