Dallas Police Department Says The 10 Young People Shot At A Party Venue Were Not Intended Targets – CBS Dallas/Fort Worth

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Police Department confirmed Monday that nearly 1,000 people attended a massive party that was targeted by at least one person with a gun who opened fire on the crowd.

Ten people, all between the ages of 15 and 21, were gunned down around 11:50 p.m. Saturday, March 19, outside an entertainment venue on the 5200 block of Botham Jean Boulevard.

According to police, someone fired at least 30 shots, based on the number of shell casings found at the scene.

An apparent Spring Break party at The Space Dallas attracted hundreds of teens and young adults.

It is believed that a driver drove past the front of the party scene and opened fire.

One of the victims, an 18-year-old, is still in critical condition.

A young man who spoke to CBS 11 said he was queuing up to get in when the shooting began.

“You hear one shot go off, it sounded far away, so nobody reacted, and three seconds later you hear a whole bunch. Fifteen shots in two seconds,” he said.

At the moment, police have no details about a suspect or motive, but they did say the people who were shot were “not the intended targets”.

They don’t say if they know who the targets were.

Anyone with cell phone video or information about the shooting will contact Detective Alec Lopez, #10715 via email or at 214-671-3658. See case number 048526-2022.
