When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man lying unresponsive in a parking lot. He had been shot multiple times, police said.
Officers started CPR until Dallas Fire-Rescue arrived and took the victim to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Police have not yet identified the victim pending family notification.
While investigating, detectives learned that a suspect, whom they identified as 20-year-old Maliki Brown, was being treated at a local hospital with a gunshot wound. Brown is one of two suspects allegedly involved in the homicide, according to police.

It’s been a deadly start to the year for the city as high rates of murders and other crimes persist. According to the City of Dallas Crime Analytics dashboard, police have recorded 20 murders and non-negligent homicides so far this year, surpassing the 18 recorded last January to date.
Last year, a total of 214 murders and non-negligent homicides were reported in the city of Dallas.
So, why isn’t your much publicized victims graphic updated more often? It still shows only 5 murders, and is dated January 9. For this to be useful, it needs to be updated more often, like maybe weekly.
