Child Sitting In Apartment Shot, Killed In Old East Dallas


CAPTURING THE CITY’S ATTENTION. ONE WAS A SON OF A DALLAS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER AND THE OTHER IS A 9-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO HAS NOTICEABLY SHAKEN OFFICERS THEMSELVES. SHE IS SITTING IN HER HOUSE AND SHE FEELS SAFE. SHE WAS NINE YEARS OLD. SHE WOULD HAVE STARTED SCHOOL TODAY. SHE GOT HER NAILS DONE YESTERDAY. I CANNOT EVEN FATHOM. WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING WITH US. THIS PICTURE IS OF 9-YEAR-OLD BRANDONIYA BENNETT. AT YOU HER POLICE SAY SHE WAS DOING NOTHING MORE THAN SITTING IN AN APARTMENT WHEN SOMEONE OUTSIDE OF HER HOME FIRE THE DEADLY SHOT. WE HAVE TO TEEN COVERTS TONIGHT — TEAM COVERTS TONIGHT. I WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS AS OFFICERS ARE SHEDDING A LITTLE BIT MORE LIGHT ON THIS INVESTIGATION. TELL US WHAT IS NEW. Reporter: APPARENTLY THE SUSPECT IS A RAPPER AND HE AND A FELLOW RAPPER HOSTED WHAT THEY CALL ‘DIS’ TRACKS ONLINE TARGETING EACH OTHER AND CREATING A FEW THAT SPILLED OVER INTO THE APARTMENT COMPLEX. ONE RAN INTO THE UNIT AND ONE FIRED INTO WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS THAT UNIT BUT IT WAS THE ONE NEXT DOOR AND THAT IS WHERE BRANDONIYA BENNETT WAS SIMPLY SITTING ON HER COUCH. TYRESE SIMMONS IS THE ,19 SUSPECT THE DALLAS POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR AFTER HE WAS IDENTIFIED AS THE SHOOTER. POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR AND ASKING FOR THE PUBLIC’S HELP. BEFORE THE SHOOTING HE MADE THREATS ABOUT OPENING FIRE HER BY FAMILIES WHO REST THEIR KIDS INSIDE. HE SAID I WILL BE BACK TO AIR OUT THIS PLACE AND THAT IS A COMMON TERM THAT YOU ARE GOING TO SHOOT THE APARTMENT COMPLEX. Reporter: BRANDONIYA BENNETT WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD AND RESPONDING OFFICERS MADE A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO GET THE 9- YEAR-OLD TO THE HOSPITAL WEEKLY. SHE DIED SOON AFTER AND THAT LED TO AN EMOTIONAL SCENE OUTSIDE OF THE HOME. EVEN OFFICERS HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND THE SENSELESS CRIME. SHE WAS SITTING IN HER HOUSE AND FELT SAFE. SHE WAS NINE YEARS OLD. SHE WOULD HAVE STARTED SCHOOL TODAY. SHE GOT HER NAILS DONE YESTERDAY. Reporter: POLICE HERE TELL ME THEY WILL NOW HAVE 24 HOUR PATROLS AT THE APARTMENT COMPLEX FOR THE FOR SEEABLE FUTURE. IT IS THE THIRD MURDER IN A MONTH AT THAT COMPLEX RUN BY THE DALLAS HOUSING AUTHORITY. SOURCES SAID THEY HAVE BEEN
