DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas police confirmed Monday that nearly 1,000 people were at a large party targeted by at least one person with a gun who opened fire on the crowd.
Ten people, all between the ages of 15 and 21, were shot dead outside an event center in the 5200 block of Botham Jean Boulevard at around 11:50 p.m. on Saturday March 19.
Police said someone fired at least 30 rounds, based on the number of shell casings found at the scene.
An apparent Spring Break party inside Space Dallas drew hundreds of teenagers and young adults.
A driver is believed to have rolled alongside the scene of the party and opened fire.
One of the victims, 18, is still in critical condition.
A young man who spoke to CBS 11 said he was in line to enter when the shooting began.
“You hear a gunshot, it sounded a long way off so no one reacted, then three seconds later you hear a whole bunch of them. Fifteen shots in two seconds,” he said.
At this stage, police have no details of a suspect or motive, but said the people who were shot were “not the intended targets”.
They don’t say if they know who the targets were.
