Authorities arrived at the scene and found evidence of a violent battle even though the apartment was unoccupied.
Dallas Police Department spokesperson Juan Fernandez recounted what first responders saw at the site in the news release. He stated:
“(There was) a large amount of blood and a blood trail.”
Later, according to Dallas News, officers received a call from a neighbouring hospital stating that Byron Redmon and the unnamed woman were in a car close to the facility. Police received confirmation from the hospital that both had been shot. Redmon suffered a leg wound while the woman was shot in the neck.
Investigators believe that a domestic disagreement may have led to the shooting. Prior to the strange event, there is conjecture that Byron Redmon may have intended to kill the woman, but police are also looking into the possibility that the gunshot was the result of an accidently discharged weapon.
Gun Violence in America
Following a string of shootings throughout the country, Byron Redmon’s passing serves as yet another illustration of the pervasive gun violence in America. The CDC estimates that Texas saw approximately 4164 firearm deaths in 2020 alone.
The evil doer found out the hard way that guns and bullets don’t have any friends.
For the Rest In Peace crowd:
Save it. He’s now in hell where he belong.

Due to prominent mass shootings that have occurred this year in Texas, New York, Illinois, and Oklahoma, the topic of gun violence has gained more attention. According to an FBI analysis, residents of Texas bought 150,464 legal firearms in June, more than residents of any other state.
Imagine an America where healthcare is a human right.
Where there aren’t hundreds of gun violence victims each year.
One where corporate greed doesn’t control our government.
Let’s make this a reality.
