On January 11, 2016 at about 1:00 a.m., Dallas police received a 9-1-1 call regarding a man lying in the street in the 1700 block of Ridgedorf Drive.  The caller described hearing a gunshot and then dogs barking. When the caller looked outside he saw the victim.  When officers arrived, they found an unidentified Latin male in critical condition suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Dallas Fire Rescue transported him to Baylor hospital, where he later died as a result of his injuries. This investigation is on-going. Detectives are working to identify the victim and suspect in this case. 

None of the three murders appear to be related.  We hope that anyone who has information regarding any of these offenses will call Dallas police detectives at 214-671-3584.   We appreciate the families and public’s patience as we work to solve the murders of these individuals.
