A gunman is at large after shooting two people while targeting others along Northwest Highway Tuesday morning, police say.
"We have a total of three cars that were shot and two people that were shot," said Dallas Police Department Sgt. Warren Mitchell.
During a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Mitchell said a person driving a white Chevrolet Malibu pulled up behind two people inside a black Nissan Cube and opened fire.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"This car was driving down eastbound Northwest Highway and this other car pulled alongside and started shooting into the other car," Mitchell explained.
The driver of the Cube drove to a nearby gas station, an Exxon at the corner of Northwest Highway and Walton Walker/Loop 12, where he and a female passenger ran inside.
"She told me, I need your help please. Somebody wants to shoot me," said the clerk, Mateen Khokhar. "I became so scared at that time too."
Khokhar said he locked the door and told them to get in the back of the room.
Police said the driver of the Malibu circled the parking lot four or five times before opening fire on the Cube vehicle again. While shooting at the vehicle, police said the gunman inadvertantly shot into a white Mercedes driven by an Uber driver. Two passengers were hit in the back seat.
The men injured in the shooting were hospitalized with injuries that were not life threatening. The two people in the Nissan Cube were not injured.
A third vehicle was hit with gunfire, but the driver was not injured, police said.
"It's a bad thing," Khokhar said. "Whoever did that, totally unjustified."
Dallas police have released no information about the shooter other than the vehicle driven.
