Is the violence in Dallas starting again?
The city has been headed back in the right direction after Mayor Eric Johnson finally realized his programs were creating more problems than solving.
Johnson reversed course about 18 months ago, but the city is now seeing another rash of violent crimes, with this shooting being the latest.
NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth reported that four people were killed in an overnight shooting earlier in the week.
Two suspects have been charged with capital murder in the case. They have been identified as Artemio Maldonado, 18, and Azucena Sanchez, 20, reports Fox News.
When authorities arrived at the scene of the shooting, they found four victims, two men and two women, all were pronounced dead at the scene. The identities of the victims is still being withheld.
The shooting occurred around 1:00 am on Sunday, but police were not called until after 7:00 pm Sunday.
According to the report, Sanchez was the ex-girlfriend of one of the victims and they were involved in a nasty custody battle over their son. Sanchez admitted that she and Maldonado broke into the home to rob it. They took a box that they thought had money in it, but were surprised to see that it was empty when they finally opened it up.
When they broke in, they were surprised to find out that people were home, and Maldonado reportedly started shooting at people. Police stated that he had already confessed to the murders.
The police did not have to search very long, as the couple was found only a few blocks away from the shooting about two hours after the bodies were discovered. There was an infant in the apartment, who has been turned over to Child Protective Services. It was not made clear if the child was the child involved in the custody battle.
