Two men have been arrested for the shooting death of a man outside a Dallas strip club. The two security guards open fired on the victim as he tried to flee the scene. Most of the confrontation was caught on video by a bystander.
According to DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It was just a few hours into the New Year and police in Dallas were investigating their first murder of 2019. A man was killed in a parking lot near a northwest Dallas strip club.
It was just before 3:00 a.m. when a fight outside the XTC Cabaret, on Stemmons Freeway near Mockingbird, ended with gunfire.
After the shooting, investigators determined an argument, involving a 34-year-old man, had gotten the attention of several unarmed and armed security officers.
When the guards, who worked at the neighboring nightclub, attempted to stop the victim from leaving he ignored their commands and proceeded to try and drive away.
After ignoring their commands, security officers Daterrious Haggard and Eric Hansen opened fire on the victim’s truck. The victim was shot several times and crashed into several cars parked in the lot. The 34-year-old, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say security Officers Haggard and Hansen were interviewed by Dallas police and both admitted firing their weapon at the victim.
