Three teenagers killed after male opens fire in Garland convenience store
The Garland Police Department is looking for a man who opened fire at a convenience store on Sunday evening, killing three teenagers and injuring a fourth.
At 7:30pm on Sunday, Garland police responded to a shooting at a convenience store in the 700 block of W. Walnut Street not far from the downtown Garland area. When officers arrived, they found four people shot inside the store. Three of them were pronounced deceased at the scene and a fourth was transported to a local hospital in grave condition.
Authorities say all four victims were males between the ages of 14 and 16. They were all from Garland.
Detectives have viewed surveillance video that shows the four victims inside the store. A man pulls up in a white Dodge RAM four-door pickup truck, opens the front door of the store, and opens fire. The suspect then gets back into the passenger side of the pickup truck and flees the scene.
The male shooter is described as a light skinned male, last seen wearing a baseball hat, blue surgical mask, and dark colored athletic shorts. He was not wearing a shirt. Garland police have arrested a 14 year old male who is suspected to be the shooter. He was wielding a 40 caliber pistol with extended magazine and fired at least 20 rounds.
Police are looking for a second individual who was involved in the incident along with the suspect vehicle. The white Dodge RAM four-door pickup truck has large scrapes on the passenger doors of the vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Garland Police Department at 972-485-4840.
