Four individuals were shot at a somber vigil in Dallas, Texas, Tuesday night, held to commemorate the life of a man who had been fatally shot the previous day.
Witnesses told the authorities that the gathering had been peaceful until the moment of gunfire, which reportedly emanated from two separate vehicles.
The Dallas Police Department swiftly responded to the incident, arriving on the scene in an effort to locate the perpetrators. Four people were found injured, and were immediately transported to local hospitals. Their conditions are currently unclear.
This devastating act of violence follows the death of an unidentified victim Monday night in the same area, where a suspect opened fire and fled. Although the authorities are currently still searching for the individual responsible, they do not believe there is a connection between the two shootings.
The Dallas community is now reeling from the unfortunate events, as investigators work to uncover more information about the individuals involved and the circumstances of the shootings.
The Dallas Police Department has yet to comment on the matter.
