    Late Saturday, Dallas police identified the victims:  21-year-old Tyteanna Lyahanee Brown, 36-year-old Kimberly Montgomery and 37-year-old Demarcus Walton.

    Neighbors woke up to the sound of multiple gunshots Saturday morning. When officers arrived, they found three people dead inside a white house.

    "There is evidence at the location that the house is a probably point of sale for narcotics," said Major Jeff Cotner with the Dallas Police Department. Cotner said a fourth shooting victim sought help from a neighbor and was taken to Baylor Medical Center. That victim's condition was unknown at last check.

    Later in the morning, three cars were towed away from the property where the shootings occurred.

    "We have a black male that’s a suspect, I’m not going to release some of the information that we have developed because it’s important to our case, so we believe the individual should be known to the victims," said Cotner.

    Grief filled the street as those who knew the victims came out after hearing the news.

    Cotner said the suspect was encountered by two witnesses as he was fleeing. He said no weapons were recovered at the scene, but there is no need for neighbors to be concerned about their safety.

    "At this point right now we believe this incident to be isolated to the incident at this house and no one else is in imminent danger," he said.
