Mesquite police seek public’s help finding two murder suspects

Mesquite police are asking for the public's help to find two people who they say are responsible for a homicide early Saturday morning.

According to police, just after 1:45 a.m., officers were called out to the intersection of Avis Street and Gillette Drive.

They found 29-year-old Keniesha Coleman, of Terrell, shot.

She was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police believe there was a fight that led to the shooting.

Investigators are asking for any information on what's believed to be a male and female involved, who reportedly had no relationship with Coleman.
