Suspect Arrested in SMU Grad's Fatal Shooting

Woman hit by stray bullet

Dallas police have arrested a man suspected in a road rage shooting that killed an innocent bystander outside the Ultra Lounge on March 29.

Someone prompted by the offer of a $10,000 reward gave police a tip identifying Alejandro Espinoza, 21, as the suspect in the shooting, police said.

Jessica Waldron, 24, of Dallas, was struck in her lower back at about 2:20 a.m. as she waited for the valet to bring her vehicle outside the club on Commerce Street.  Paramedics performed CPR on Waldron as they transported her to Baylor Hospital, where she later died.

Espinoza was driving southbound down Commerce firing at another driver, who he had a dispute with, when a stray bullet hit Waldron, detectives said. 

Espinoza told police that he didn't realize what he did until days later.

He was booked into the Dallas County Thursday on $150,000 bail and charged with murder.

Waldron graduated from Southern Methodist University in 2007.
