Five people shot in two separate shootings in Dallas

The Dallas Police Department is investigating two separate shootings that occurred last night in the city of Dallas. Both occurred within 30 minutes of each other.

At 10:30PM, officers were called to a house in the 2700 block of Pennsylvania Ave (South Dallas neighborhood area). Multiple people were shot after someone pulled up in front of the house and opened fire. Two men and one woman were transported to a local hospital with gunshot wounds. The suspect has not been located at this time.

At 10:48PM, officers responded to a shooting call at an apartment complex in the 9300 block of Forest Lane (Lake Highlands neighborhood). Two men were shot. Both were transported to a local hospital, one with non-life-threatening injuries and the other in critical condition. The suspect fled before police arrived.

Both of these incidents are under investigation. Although they occurred within a short time of each other and in different parts of the city, police have not indicated whether they are related.
