Man Shoots Boss, Kills Self In Dallas Office Tower

A man shot his boss in a Dallas office tower this morning before turning his weapon on himself.

A man who entered a Dallas office building Monday morning and shot his boss and then himself is dead, sources tell WFAA.

Multiple sources tell WFAA a man entered the office building, located in the 8300 block of Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway near US-75, and shot his boss before turning the gun on himself.

There was no immediate word on the victim’s condition. Ambulances were sent to the office building in the wake of the shooting.

SWAT officers were also at the scene late Monday morning.

The incident began at about 10:10 a.m. Monday and people inside the building were asked to evacuate at about 10:30 a.m., said Shawn Harber, who was among those evacuated.

The shooting reportedly occurred on the tenth floor of the office building, located in the 8300 block of LBJ Freeway just east of Central Expressway off Schroeder Road.


Other outlets are claiming that the shooting took place on the seventh floor.

The incident was originally reported as a possible “active shooter” situation and many news outlets are still reporting the incident as such at this time. The local CBS news outlet is reporting that there was an FBI raid by dozens of agents on the same floor of the same office building last week, but there isn’t any evidence tying the shooting to the raid, at least not at this time. The same outlet is reporting that a DALLAS SWAT officer was injured as tactical teams swept the building.

A shattered window at the office building suggests that the shooter may have shot it out.
