During what has been described as a “domestic disturbance,” a Dallas man shot a woman but then somehow the bullet exited her body, ricocheted off of something, then struck him, resulting in a mortal wound. The woman survived.
The incident that led to the bizarre and ironic death of the man started when Dallas Police officers responded to reports of a shooting at a residence in the city. Officers found a “large amount of blood and a blood trail,” but the apartment was empty, according to a police press release.
During that time, police also received a call from a nearby hospital complex that a man and woman with apparent gunshot wounds had been found in a vehicle outside. The man died in the hospital, but the woman survived and has since been released, police said.
Police later identified the deceased man as Byron Redmon, 26, and classified the shooting as a “domestic disturbance.”
According to preliminary results from the investigation, police believe the woman was shot in the neck by Redmon. “The bullet then exited and hit Redmon in the leg,” police said, probably severing a major artery that resulted in the man bleeding to death.
The woman’s name has not been released.
Dallas police say the investigation is ongoing.
