Feud Leads to Fatal Shooting in Dallas Neighborhood: One Dead, One Injured, Suspect Arrested

Dallas, Texas – A deadly shooting incident in the Oak Cliff neighborhood has left one man dead and another injured after an ongoing feud escalated into violence on June 11. The shooting took place around 10:40 p.m. on South Winnetka Avenue, shocking residents with the sound of gunfire and speeding cars in what is typically a quiet area.

Police have identified the alleged shooter as Salvador Martinez, 20, who is currently being held on a $1 million bond on charges of murder. The victim, 23-year-old Stephano Osorio, was found shot and killed at the scene, while a 16-year-old boy who was with him was also injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.
