Shooting on Dallas DART train: Suspect at large after one killed and two injured


A suspect is on the run after one person was killed and two others were injured in a shooting on a DART train in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday – just hours after a mass shooting left eight dead at a nearby shopping mall.

Gunfire broke out on board a Green Line train near Hatcher Station when two people got into an argument on Sunday afternoon, accoding to authorities.

DART police said that officers responded to a shooting on the northbound train at around 4.30pm.

Officers arrived on the scene to find two people – one of them a bystander – suffering gunshot wounds.

They were both transported to local hospital where one of the victims was pronounced dead.

The bystander’s condition is unknown.

A third individual was also wounded in the shooting after being struck by shrapnel, police said.

That individual was treated at the scene.

Now, DART police are searching for the suspected shooter, whose identity is unknown.

It is unclear whether or not the individuals knew each other prior to the shooting or what the initial argument involved.

DART Green Line trains resumed normal operations hours after the shooting but the bus shuttle remained canceled for the rest of the day, DART tweeted.
