One Dead In Shootout; 3 Men On the Lam
Two cars played Chicken in Oak Cliff last night. But it was no game. One man died and several others were hurt in a fight that un-folded in front of dozens of frightened neighbors. Residents near Clarendon and Westmoreland began ducking for cover when the bullets started flying, with children playing only a few feet away. Fortunately, they were not hit. It started when two groups of men, in a Cadillac and a Nissan, traded gunfire as the cars sped away from each other. But they met again just four blocks away and sped toward one another in a life-threatening game of Chicken. Neither driver broke off and the cars slammed head-on. Four men went to the hospital while three others ran for it. They remain on the loose this morning. One of the men at at the hospital later died. Police suspect the men are part of rival gangs.
