Dallas teen killed by random gunfire

Posted: Updated:

Dallas police are asking for help to find the person who killed a teen who was walking down a street.

It happened just after 11 p.m. Saturday along Shepps Parkway in Pleasant Grove.

Sixteen-year-old Samuel Brightmon was with a friend when they heard gunshots.

They tried to run, but Brightmon was hit. He died at the hospital.

"It's so unreal right now. It's a million and one things going through my head, but then I just can't focus on anything. The only image I see is the last image I have of me holding him," said Audrey Smith, the victim's mother.

Brightmon's friend was not hurt.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an indictment.
