On March 31, 2016, at approximately 12:00 a.m., Dallas police responded to a shooting call at 3311 S. Vernon Ave. #1204 where David Sanchez L/M 33 had been shot and killed. A second victim, Louis Serna L/M 31, had also been shot and transported to Methodist Central hospital in critical condition.
The investigation revealed that Cortez Bowser, a 29-year-old black male, who the victim and witnesses know, came over and was invited in. While there, Bowser went into the bathroom. After a short period he exited the bathroom and shot both Mr. Serena and Mr. Sanchez. Bowser fled the scene prior to the officers arrival.
This afternoon members of the Dallas Police Department’s Southwest Deployment Unit arrested Cortez Bowser in Garland, Tx for an unrelated outstanding felony warrant for domestic violence. Arrestee Bowser is currently in the Dallas County jail charged with that warrant, Aggravated Assault for shooting Mr. Serna and the murder of Mr. Sanchez on a $150,000 bond.
