In the early morning of March 28, 2016, at approximately 12:33 a.m., Dallas Police responded to a shooting call at 9911 Whitehurst Drive. Upon officers’ arrival, they found Derek Jordan, a 19-year-old black male, deceased from gunshot wounds. At 12:34 a.m., Dallas Police were dispatched to a second shooting  call at 9540 Royal Lane regarding a victim who was shot. Dallas Fire Rescue responded to the scene and transported a 19-year-old Latin male victim to Presbyterian Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
