Two people shot, including Dallas rapper, after armed man opens fire on I35E in Dallas
The Dallas Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting that occurred late this morning on the northbound lanes of I35E near Clarendon Road in the Oak Cliff area.
Just before noon, a man was driving northbound on Interstate 35E when his vehicle was approached by another vehicle, possibly occupied multiple times. As both vehicles came to a stop on the highway, the suspect got out of his vehicle armed with a gun and started walking towards the victim’s vehicle. The victim got out of his car and started running south on the highway. The armed man fired multiple shots, striking the victim at least one.
One of the shots also hit an innocent driver caught in the middle of the incident.
The victim was transported to a local hospital, but he was pronounced deceased. He has been identified as Dallas rapper Mo3, a 28-year-old man.
The innocent driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
An 18-wheeler on the highway was also impacted by a gunshot.
Dallas police are still working to determine if this was a targeted attack on the rapper. They are not ruling anything out at this point in the investigation.
The shooter is still on the loose. Witnesses describe the vehicle as dark in color.
Lanes of the highway were closed while police investigated the shooting.
