Dallas (WBAP/KLIF) -According to the Dallas Police Department, a 1-year-old was shot and killed early Sunday morning when someone walked up to a house in South Dallas and fired several shots into it. No arrests have been made.
Police said Sunday the shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. in a neighborhood near Rhoads Terrace Park.
The baby, Rory Norman, was hit by at least one bullet, and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. He would have turned two later this month. The boy’s uncle was also shot but is expected to survive.
Police Chief Renee Hall said she believed the home was targeted.
“[The suspect] shot only into the bedrooms,” said Chief Hall. “He angled the weapon in the downward position. And because it was 3:30 in the morning he knew the residents of the home would be asleep.”
The Chief said she visited the scene of the shooting.
“It’s something you never want so see,” Chief Hall said. “Not only as a mother but a Police Chief. It happened on my watch. And this sh*t has to stop in this city.”
An 8-year-old was also grazed by a bullet in Lake Highlands over the weekend. Chief Hall is asking for information from the public on both shootings.
