One person is dead and three others were shot when a robbery turned violent early Friday morning at the Motel 6 in the 10900 block of Estate Lane. A black man was found dead on scene when officers arrived at 1:27 a.m. Police have not identified him because his family had not yet been notified.
Two white women and another black man suffered what police are calling “non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.”
One unidentified suspect was captured on scene, while another is still at large.
WFAA is reporting that a witness reported the incident started as a robbery after an armed man kicked the door in, before he began shooting. They also said two dogs were removed from the room by police.
“This is an active investigation and more information will be released as it is received and deemed appropriate to do so,” Senior Cpl. Tramese Andrews said in a statement.
