While Dallas police were investigating a man's shooting death outside an Oak Cliff-area beer store, more shots were fired nearby.
Officers initially responded to a shooting call at McGriff's Beer and Wine Store on S. Marsalis and E. Saner Avenues about 11 p.m. Wednesday.
They discovered a man shot dead lying face-down in the parking lot, and multiple bullet casings on the ground.
He was later identified as 28-year-old Eric Handy of Dallas. Police say he had multiple gunshot wounds to his head and upper body.
As detectives investigated the scene, more gunfire peppered the air -- and officers rushed to a home on S. Ewing Avenue, just three blocks away.
They spotted a gray Chevy speeding away, and officers caught the driver in front of another home on Alabama Avenue.
He was taken into custody for traffic violations and outstanding warrants, but police aren't connecting him to the murder in front of the store.
