3 Injured in Garland Shooting, Gunman Still At-Large
GARLAND, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Two people were shot outside a Garland apartment complex during a dispute on Tuesday around 3:30 p.m.

Initial information had a third person shot, but that person was injured another way and treated at the scene.

It happened in the 3700 block of Easton Meadows near I-30 and President George Bush Turnpike behind Lakeview Centennial High School.

One witness had just returned from school and told CBS 11 people started running and ducking behind cars when the shots were fired.

“As I’m hearing gunshots, I’m swinging, trying to avoid them and I feel them going past me,” said Nae Williams. “I ducked under the car. I was so scared and shook, because I didn’t know what was going on.”

Police believes a large group, somewhere between 20 and 50 people, were fighting when a suspect pulled out a gun and started shooting striking the child and woman.

The suspect is still at large but police believes this is an isolated incident and there is no public danger.

Police were called to an apartment complex in the 3500 block of Easton Meadows Drive, near Roan Road and Interstate 30, shortly before 4 p.m.

Two people — a 25-year-old and a 14-year-old — were shot and taken to a hospital. Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, police said.

Officers had taped off the entrance to the apartments and could be seen inspecting a black vehicle that had its trunk and both drivers-side doors open. Several shoes were strewn on the ground nearby.

Police asked that people avoid the area if possible while they continue to investigate. No information about a suspect or suspects has been released.
