FORT WORTH — A 20-year-old and 19-year-old were identified as the men who died after a shooting outside Home Depot in Fort Worth Thursday night.

Zyshonne Dunkley, 20, was identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner as one of the men who died. His cause of death was listed as gunshot wounds on the left thigh and his time of death was 2:20 a.m.

Olynthus Davis, 19, was identified as the other man. Davis died from multiple gunshot wounds at 11:15 p.m. Thursday, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.

The two men were shot at about 9:40 p.m. after an argument escalated into gunfire in the parking lot of the Home Depot at 7950 South Freeway, according to police. Police say they believe the men were attempting to rob other people in a car when they were shot.

At least a dozen police units responded to the shooting call. Dunkley died after being taken to the hospital and the other man died while being treated at the scene, police said.

Police said surveillance footage showed the men walking up to a car in the parking lot before the shooting.

Police said they believe the person or people in the car have knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the shooting and are requesting anyone with information, including the occupants of the vehicle, to contact Detective Watson at 817-392-4330.

An officer en route to the shooting was injured when his patrol car was hit by another vehicle in an intersection, police said. He was treated at the scene.

An Arlington police officer is recovering at a hospital and a suspect is dead after a shooting during a traffic stop off West Randol Mill Road Friday night.
