Man Shot By Dallas Police Officer Suing for $10 Million. In other, not-so-flattering news for the DPD, Kelvion Walker, the unarmed man shot by then Senior Corporal Amy Wilburn late last year, has amended his lawsuit against the city to ask for at least $10 million.

Woman Found Dead in Fort Worth Apartment. Sorry for the repetition, but this was a sad holiday weekend, especially for these women and their families. In this instance, police were alerted to the apartment because it was on fire, a fire that was kept small by a sprinkler system. Fort Worth Police have said that she did “not die of natural causes.” The victim, Ashlea Harris, had worked until 3 am at Hulen Mall for Black Friday before returning home.
