DENTON, TX, March 24, 2023 — Detectives and forensics professionals are actively working to determine what events led up to a double homicide in Denton late last night, and who is responsible.
At approximately 10 p.m. Thursday, March 23, officers were dispatched to a shooting call at an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Dallas Drive. Upon arrival, officers located two deceased gunshot victims, an adult male and an adult female, in a vehicle.
After speaking to witnesses, it was quickly determined that the suspects believed to be involved in this shooting had fled from the scene prior to police arrival. While this investigation is still in its very preliminary stages, there are factors present that strongly indicate this was not a random act of violence.

You can always call Denton County Crime Stoppers to anonymously report a tip: 1-800-388-TIPS (8477).
