Dallas, Texas — In the early morning hours on Sunday, the downtown Dallas was rattled by a deadly shooting incident, and the investigation about this incident is still ongoing. North Texas Crimestoppers, an organization dedicated to aiding law enforcement, has announced a reward of up to $5,000 for information that will lead to an arrest related to the crime.
Dallas Police Department responded at the scene around 2:30 a.m. on July 30
Officers of the Dallas Police Department, responding to reports of gunfire, arrived at the intersection of Commerce Street and South Pearl Expressway at 2:35 a.m. on July 30. Their prompt intervention led to the discovery of two individuals, wounded by bullets.
Transported immediately to a nearby hospital, the victims were identified, and their conditions assessed.

Police authorities subsequently identified a third victim, located at an entirely separate medical facility, who has since been reported as being in stable condition.
