On Friday March 17, Dallas police responded to two shooting calls located on the 7400 block of S. Westmoreland Road.

Upon arrival they found 23 year old Jacory Simpson inside of a business. He was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.

While investigating authorities also learned that another victim, 19 year old Donovan Jones, was also taken to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on March 18.

According to reports, Simpson was in the parking lot on March 17 where he got into an argument with 20 year old Cameron Cooks. Cooks then opened fire striking Simpson.

Cooks was arrested for Assault Serious Bodily Injury. He was transported to Dallas County Jail.

Dallas police are also investigating a shooting that injured four people on Saturday March 18 at a vigil.

It was said someone in a white Chrysler drove by and opened fire into the crowd striking four people.

All four victims were transported to an area hospital where they are expected to make a full recovery.
