16-year-old shoots, kills man in East Dallas apartment

Posted: Updated:
A 16-year old shot and killed a man in an East Dallas apartment on Thursday night, but it’s not clear if it was an accident or intentional.

Officers were called to the apartment complex near Buckner Boulevard just before 10 p.m. on Thursday.

Police said the teen told them he picked up a sawed off shotgun in the apartment, but did not know the gun was loaded when he aimed and pulled the trigger, hitting Juan Avalos.

Avalos died at the hospital.

The teen suspect is being held at the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center and has been charged with criminally negligent homicide.

Police also arrested Enrique Hernandez and he has been charged with making a firearm accessible to a minor.
