(Newser) – A pair of related shootings in two Texas cities killed at least four people and injured four more, NBC-Dallas/Fort Worth reports. Police found four shooting victims, two dead, in a Dallas neighborhood last night. Two wounded victims on the scene were hospitalized. The suspect in that attack fled to DeSoto, police said; 15 minutes later, police responding to a scene there found four others had been shot—and again, two were dead. Some of the victims are believed to be children, the Dallas Morning News reports. FBI and ATF agents were on the ground in DeSoto, NBC notes; a male suspect is in custody.
