DENTON, TX, April 7, 2023 – A second suspect, 29-year-old Benjaminpaul Teal, has been arrested for Capital Murder as part of Denton PD’s continued investigation into last month’s double homicide.
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. These victims have since been identified by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office as 29-year-old Breanna Dunn, and 43-year-old Ronald Calvert Jr.
Witnesses reported seeing two suspects flee from the shooting. Numerous pieces of evidence connected the first suspect, 29-year-old Silvester Williams, to the male victim. Following the Capital Murder arrest of Williams on Monday, April 3, interviews and physical evidence led detectives to determine Teal was the second suspect in the double homicide.
On Friday morning, Teal was arrested for Capital Murder in Wichita Falls, for causing the death of two people during the same criminal act.
