Dallas police are investigating the shooting of a woman during a robbery downtown this morning. The woman was walking to work this morning at 6am on Akrad Street – around the corner from Dallas City Hall. The gunman approached her and a co-worker and demanded money before shooting the woman in the head. The victim, an AT&T employee, was taken to Baylor University Medical Center in serious condition. So far the shooter, who has not been apprehended, may have been involved in two other downtown robberies earlier, one at 800 S. Akard and the other at 3500 Commerce St. Both involved purse snatching.
If you are in Downtown, take precaution and be aware of your surroundings.
