The City of Dallas saw 12 homicides in April 2022, up by four from the same time period last year for an increase of 50%.

In April 2022, homicides were reported in half of the City of Dallas’ 14 districts (Districts 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10), an additional district compared to the six that saw homicides in April 2021.

The City of Dallas Districts 2, 4, 9, and 10 had homicide offenses reported in April 2022 (two, three, one, and one, respectively) after having none reported in April of the previous year.

In late April of this year, 37-year-old Rocio Carrillo died after being shot at around 2 a.m. on April 10, in the 3200 block of Jerome Street in District 2, south of Interstate 30 near Dolphin Road, The Dallas Express reports.

Responding officers discovered Carrillo and two other men were shot. The three victims were transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition, where one of them, Carlos Galindo, 36, was pronounced dead.

Dallas police confirmed on April 27 that no arrests had been made in connection with the shooting. The Dallas Express reached out to the Dallas Police Department detective in charge of the case to inquire whether an arrest was made in the murder but by press time had not received a response.

In District 4, Dallas police arrived at the 1500 block of South Denley Drive around 3 a.m. on April 12 and discovered a victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, The Dallas Express reports.

The male was driving north on Denley when he was shot multiple times, according to DPD, causing him to crash into a fence in front of Highway to Heaven Missionary Church in the 1300 block of Stella Avenue.

The unidentified victim was pronounced dead by Dallas Fire-Rescue at the scene.

Dallas Police Department Detective Derick Chaney told The Dallas Express there has been no update in this case.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Detective Chaney at 214-671-3650 or [email protected] and refer to case No. 063725-2022.
