Man Fatally Shot While Getting Out of Car at Dallas Home

A 57-year-old man was shot as he was getting out of his vehicle at his home in Dallas Wednesday night, police said.

Dallas police and Dallas Fire Rescue responded about 9:50 p.m. to the 13800 block of Stonemoss Drive where they found the man with multiple gunshot wounds, police said.

The man was identified as Pablo Campos. He was transported to the hospital where he later died.

NBC 5 spoke with the victim's 22-year-old son and wife on Thursday morning.

She was inside their home when shots rang out nearby.

"It's kind of hard," said Enrique Campos. "It's just hard to believe. I don't think we've processed it yet."

It is a loss any son would struggle to understand.

Especially when this young man says he came home just after 9:45 Wednesday night and found his father Pablo Campos on the ground near their front door.

"I was just looking at him like: 'what happened?' You know, because I just couldn't believe it. He was covered in blood," said Campos. "He was coughing up blood. They shot him in the neck, so he had a lot of blood."

Campos says his father was shot seven times.

Who would want to kill the 57-year-old who worked as a chef?

A man, loved ones and neighbors tell NBC 5, was dedicated to work, his wife and kids.

"He would just go to work and come home," said Campos. "I don't know why someone would want to kill him."

Detectives with the Dallas Police Department spent the morning walking door to door talking to stunned neighbors along Stonemoss Drive, searching for any possible home surveillance video or any clues to help find Campos' killer or killers.

Meanwhile, friends and loved ones stopped by the Campos home to embrace a family now in mourning.

"He was funny. He was nice," said Campos of his father. "Just went to work and came home to us."

Campos' family says his wallet was stolen, but that he still had his cell phone on his body.

Dallas police would not confirm whether that is true.
