Dallas police said it appears to be an isolated case.

Merchants in the popular Cedar Springs Entertainment District said they were were stunned by the crime. They recently hired private security to patrol and said they thought their crime problems were improving.

"We always would like more police presence in the area, but I don't know what can be done, because these things continue to happen," said Jeff Wright, of the Cedar Springs Merchants Association.
