2 arrested over Dallas concert shooting that left 1 dead, 16 injured

Two men were arrested in connection with a shooting that killed one person and injured 16 others at an outdoor concert in Dallas last month, police said Thursday.

Dallas police said 25-year-old Astonial Calhoun and 26-year-old Devojiea Givens, whose first name was listed as Devojie in jail records, were arrested Wednesday. Jail records show Calhoun faces a charge of deadly conduct while Givens faces a charge of deadly conduct by discharging a firearm.

Both remained in jail Thursday. Bond was set at $1,500 for Calhoun and $15,000 for Givens. Jail records don’t list attorneys for either.

Police said both men had handguns and shot into the crowd after a fight broke out at the April 2 concert. Police said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing, and they’re working to identify other suspects who fired weapons in addition to other suspects who were involved in a fight that lead up to the shooting.

One dead, 11 wounded in Dallas concert shooting

Kealon Dejuane Gilmore, 26, was killed in the gunfire.

In addition to 15 people wounded by gunfire, a woman suffered a non-gun-related injury, police said. Police said after the shooting that they’d found that a permit from the city for the concert to be held wasn’t obtained.

Police said that at the time of the shooting, Givens was out on bond from a deadly conduct charge in late January.
