Man Shoots, Kills Woman Claiming She Took Gun From His Car

The incident happened around 1 a.m. Sunday

A woman is dead after a man claims she took a handgun from his car Sunday morning. 

At 1 a.m., Dallas officers were dispatched to the parking lot of Ruben's Grocery located at 1207 East Red Bird Lane.

When they arrived, they found 32-year-old Danielle Shundre Taylor suffering from a gunshot wound. Taylor was transported to the hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Police were told that the owner of a white 2015 Kia Optima parked his unlocked car and entered the grocery store.

While inside he saw Taylor take a handgun out of his car and went outside to confront her.

A struggle ensued, and as he attempted to take his gun out of the Taylor's pocket, it went off.

"Somebody died and nobody really has any explanations," John Harper, a friend of Taylor's, said. 

The shooter, whose name is not being released, was taken to Dallas Police Headquarters, questioned and released.

"I never thought I was going to see this day, one thing she loved was this neighborhood and she felt like she was safe in this neighborhood," Whitney Williams, another friend of Taylor's, said. 

Williams said Taylor left behind a 5-year-old son. The investigation is ongoing pending a Dallas County grand jury trial.
