Dallas high schooler identified as person who died in shooting involving 10 victims

Dallas police said the injured victims all ranged in ages from 15 to 21. Police haven't released any more details about these other nine victims.

DALLAS — A Dallas high schooler has died after being injured outside a South Dallas party last weekend, a family member told WFAA Thursday.

Eulinda Broadnax said her 18-year-old grandson, Anthony Deshun Wilson, was among 10 people injured as shots were fired toward a large crowd waiting to get inside The Space Dallas in the 5200 block of Botham Jean Boulevard late on Saturday, March 19.

Wilson had been taken to a local hospital and was in critical condition before his grandmother said he died.

Police confirmed on Friday, March 25, that Wilson had died from his injuries.

"I still feel like this is a dream. I want my baby,” said Broadnax.

Wilson was a senior at Lincoln High School in South Dallas. His grandmother said he was a young artist, entrepreneur and college-bound student athlete.

The victims injured in the shooting were outside of the venue, in line and were not the intended targets in this shooting. Detectives removed more than 30 casings from the scene.

"Somebody knows who killed my grandson and we want justice. We are not going to stop until we get it," Broadnax said.

No arrests have been reported and police have not released information about any suspects.
