Original story: A man is dead after an altercation over a parking space turned into a shooting on Business 121.

According to a press release from the Lewisville Police Department, two men got into an argument over parking spaces at the Park Timbers Apartments, 1902 S SH 121, late in the evening June 12. The eventual victim, 38-year-old William M. Booker III of Denton, ended the argument by kicking his neighbor’s black Dodge Challenger, and then speeding away on his motorcycle.

The neighbor pursued Booker north up Business 121, and almost two blocks later, eight to 10 shots rang out in quick succession, according to dispatch, at least one of which struck Booker. Booker turned down Oakwood Lane, where he would crash. Police were called in at 11:42 p.m., and Booker was transported to Medical City Lewisville with a gunshot wound, where he was pronounced dead at 12:28 a.m. The Tarrant County medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.  

Police described the shooter on radio traffic as a skinny black male aged 25-30 who had possibly broken his nose in the past driving a black Dodge Challenger with a scratch in the driver’s side door. They said he is still at large.

  1. In the event that a citizen see’s or locates the alleged shooter’s vehicle, so we contact LV Non-Emergency or call 911 ?

    • Heather, for a violent criminal like this, we’d suggest calling 911, and not attempting to talk to or apprehend them. Consider him armed and dangerous.
