One dead, one hurt in Lowest Greenville shooting

Another shooting on Lowest Greenville has left one person dead and one injured. The shooting took place on the parking lot at Greenville and Alta, where one person (the apparent target) was hit in the leg, but a wild bullet hit another person in the chest as he walked in front of Billiard Bar.

DPD has not released as of this writing a statement on the incident. According to numerous eyewitnesses, two persons got into a verbal argument in front of a bar, which moved to a parking lot. Three bullet rounds were flagged in the parking lot, and at least two cars were damaged by bullets (including one blown-out windshield). Sources tell BD the first victim was hit in the leg and dragged to safety behind the building by a bar employee.

The second victim was hit by a wild bullet. A witness tells BD patrons from Billiard Bar were applying pressure to the victim's chest and moving him around so as to avoid choking on his own blood. He was taken to Baylor in cardiac arrest and died. DPD is reported to be looking for one suspect, description not known. They also are reported to have his cell phone, which was dropped in the parking lot after the shooting.

This is the second shooting in less than six months on Lowest Greenville. A patron of Lost Society was shot and killed on the Char-Bar parking lot in early June 2010.
