DALLAS - Dallas police are searching for the 13-year-old gunman who they say fired into a vehicle, killing a 15-year-old and injuring another teen.
The shooting happened just before 11:30 a.m., when officers were called to the 600 block of N. Denley Dr., in a neighborhood in East Oak Cliff known as "The Bottom."
Officers found 15-year-old Luis Carlos Guevara suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
The shooter fled before officers arrived on scene.
The scene is near the Eloise Lundy Recreation Center, and witnesses say it was also hit by the gunfire.
Investigators found that Guevara was a passenger in a silver Ford sedan, along with another male teen driver.
Police say a brown Dodge Caravan pulled up, and that's when a suspect, described by a witness as 13-year-old boy, got out, and shot into Ford. It’s unclear if that witness was estimating the age, or if he and the teenage victim knew the shooter.
Guevara was killed, and the teen driver suffered non-life threatening injuries as their vehicle crashed into a utility pole.
According to police, the shooter then got back into the Caravan, which was occupied by another 13-year-old and a 20-year-old, and they drove away.
The murder, happening across the street from a community rec center, got immediate attention from the councilwoman for this district.
“I’m reaching out to community leaders because we must come together to develop a bond, a better bond, better communication with the Dallas Police Department, because if we see something, we must say something,” Councilwoman Carolyn King Arnold said.
Detectives are still trying to determine a motive. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
No further details have been released at this time.
