The Dallas Police are searching for a suspect after a man was found shot to death.

On Wednesday, February 8, officers responded to a call after an unidentified man was found lifeless in a dumpster, police said.

He had suffered a gunshot to the head.

The incident took place on 220 E. Overton Road in District 4, represented by Dallas City Councilmember and Mayor Pro Tem Carolyn King Arnold.

Officers conducted a preliminary investigation and said the man had died at the scene.

The unknown man was then taken to the Dallas Medical Examiner’s Office for identification, according to police.

The investigation is ongoing and is documented under case number 022347-2023.

The Dallas Police Department asks that anyone with information contact Detective John Valdez with the Homicide Unit at 214-671-3623 or by email at [email protected].

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called into Crime Stoppers that leads to the arrest and indictment for this felony offense and other felony offenses.

You can call Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS (8477), 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Police responded to the incident in Arnold’s District 4 for a homicide, but Arnold’s district has been the subject of The Dallas Express’ coverage about drug-related offenses increasing in her district.

Arnold’s District 4 borders District 8, which is represented by Tennell Atkins and whose district has suffered the most murders this year, as reported by The Dallas Express.

    I’m not fan of any politician, because few do the people’s bidding. However, in cases like this one, how can elected individuals be held responsible for the lawlessness of the citizens weho live or visit in their district? This is a people problem!
