Man angry about not being invited on trip shoots, seriously injures 2, Dallas police say

Two men were taken to a hospital where they are listed in critical condition after an argument escalated into a shooting on Thursday.

About 1:30 p.m., Dallas police officers responded to an armed encounter outside in the 5100 block of Mercantile Row and were told that a 37-year-old man angry about not being invited on a trip had been shooting at two men and hit each one several times.

A witness from inside the location was armed and went outside and began firing at the suspect, but it is unknown whether the suspect was wounded, according to police.

The suspect fled the location in a blue Subaru sedan. Both victims were transported to a hospital in critical condition, police said.

The two men who were shot and the man who shot at the suspect are believed to be employees of a business near where the shooting occurred, according to police. The suspect was known to the men that he wounded and could possibly be a former employee of the business, a Dallas police spokesman said.

Police said they know the identity of the suspect and are searching for him, but are not making that information public at this time.
