The Dallas Police Department announced the fatal Saturday evening shooting of a man outside an apartment in South Dallas.

Officers with the DPD responded to a shooting call on the 6500 block of South Cockrell Hill Road, close to the intersection of North Camp Wisdom Road and Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway.

Upon arriving at the scene at about 6:30 p.m., they found Juan Romero with multiple gunshot wounds. The 25-year-old was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

Investigators believe the shooting resulted from a fight between three men in a parking lot. The gunfire hit two apartment units and vehicles. However, police stated that there were no reports of injuries beyond Romero’s.

It is currently unclear if Romero was involved in the fight or was a bystander
