There is now a suspect in custody following a shooting over the weekend that resulted in two deaths and a hospitalization in Council Member Paul Ridley’s District 14.

Dallas saw a 15% increase in murders last year amid the police department’s ongoing staffing shortage, and according to the City of Dallas crime analytics dashboard, there have been 80 murders logged so far this year as of May 19. NBC 5 DFW is reporting on the latest incident:

“An arrest has been made after a triple shooting at an apartment complex in Dallas left two sisters dead and a man hospitalized early Saturday morning.

“Saadiq Shabazz, 25, is charged with capital murder in the shooting death of 22-year-old Jalisa Lockett and 24-year-old Amaya Lockett, according to the Dallas Police Department.

“Dallas Police officers responded to the 2400 block of N. Washington Avenue around 3 a.m. on Saturday after reports of a shooting at the Broadstone Paragon Apartments.

“When authorities arrived at the scene, police said they found the bodies of Jalisa and Amaya, who both had been mortally wounded by gunfire. They also found another man, Moises Flores, who was suffering from two gunshot wounds.

“Flores was rushed to Baylor Hospital and is in stable condition.

“According to an arrest affidavit, Flores told authorities that he was Amaya’s boyfriend and had known Shabazz for several months because Shabazz dated Jalisa, Amaya’s sister.”
