An argument inside a convenience store in Northeast Dallas turned deadly, according to police.

Officers were called to the Cool Zone on Emerald Street, just off Royal Lane, on Friday in Dallas City Council’s District 6 just after midnight.

When Dallas police arrived on the scene, officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

An investigation revealed the two victims had engaged in a verbal altercation with a third person inside the store. The argument moved outside and turned violent as the third person pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots at the victims, according to police.

The suspect then fled on foot.

Both gunshot victims were taken to a nearby hospital. One of the victims died at the hospital, and the other was in critical condition.

Police have not arrested anyone, nor have they released any information about the suspect or victims. The third person is presumed to be the suspect.

The investigation is ongoing.

Dallas City Council’s Omar Narvaez is responsible for District 6, which lies partly above I-30 in West Dallas, runs up against Farmers Branch, and includes the Ledbetter, La Loma, and Bachman Lake neighborhoods.

In November, 919 crimes were reported in Narvaez’s district, according to the City of Dallas Open Data dashboard. Roughly 11,596 crimes have been committed in District 6 year-to-date through December 30, second only to the 13,617 crimes reported YTD in Jesse Moreno’s District 2.

Why is it backward to be made aware of criminal activity in and around where we live?
