A neighbor sent us this photo of police outside of the Family Dollar store on Fort Worth Avenue near Sylvan this morning.
The neighbor, who declined to be identified, said there was a helicopter overhead. “Rifles pointed at the store, bulletproof vests, people randomly running out crying.”
Another neighbor reported that her child’s daycare in Kessler Park had been locked down.
The Dallas Police Department will only say that they responded to a burglary of a business call. A public information officer emailed at 11:04 a.m. “This is an active investigation and no further information is available at this time.”
