The Dallas Police Department (DPD) released surveillance footage last Thursday of a deadly Spring Break shooting from 2022 that took the life of one person and injured nine others.

In the surveillance footage, which DPD posted on Twitter, gunfire erupts from a vehicle, with flashes of lights emitting from a firearm. Nearly a year out from the incident and no one in custody, police are asking for the public’s help identifying the vehicle and any potential suspects.

On March 19, 2022, there were roughly 1,000 people at an event venue near U.S. Route 175 in the 5200 block of Botham Jean Boulevard, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Just before midnight, gunfire was heard, and multiple people were struck while waiting in line outside the establishment, according to police. Ten people were shot in total during the incident in District 7, presided over by City Councilman Adam Bazaldua.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, one of the shooting victims, 18-year-old Lincoln High student Anthony Deshun Wilson, died from his wounds just days later.

Wilson’s mother, Dominique, told The Dallas Morning News that her son was a responsible young man and had been working since he was 15.

“He’s always been considered the respectful young nephew who not only is responsible but had goals and dreams to accomplish,” she said in a text to the news outlet last March.

Violent crimes like the one that claimed Wilson’s life remains to be a serious problem in Dallas, where the city council has thus far been unable to tackle the problem.

According to the City of Dallas Open Data crime analytics dashboard, Bazaldua has seen a 20% increase in murders year-to-date as of last Friday. For its part, the City logged a 10.26% spike in murders year-to-date through Sunday, per a DPD crime briefing.
