DALLAS, TX – A shooting incident near Dallas Lincoln High School on Tuesday that left a 15-year-old boy dead has resulted in a 16-year-old boy being charged with capital murder. According to the Dallas Police, a shooting took place on the 2500 block of Southland Street, about half a mile from the high school. Officers arrived at the scene at around 10:45 am.

The minor, whose identity has been kept undisclosed due to his age, was arrested and treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital. He is expected to confront a capital murder charge.

A witness named CC shared that she observed the troubling incident through a window while visiting her mother. She recounted seeing around 15 young people swarm out from the back door of a house a few houses away from hers. At first, she perceived them to be playing since the gun looked too white and superficial. It was only when she heard gunshots that she realized the severity of the situation.

CC recognized several familiar faces, possibly waiting at the school bus stop. She conceded her concern for the safety of her loved ones in the wake of such incidents.

Kenneth Sanders, a recent member of the same neighborhood, expressed his worry for his own children and extended condolences to the victim’s family. Dallas Police Department continues to investigate the fatal shooting incident.
