CBS 11 reporter JD Miles tweeted about 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, that his sources confirm Dallas Police have made five arrests connected to Monday’s murder of Leslie Baker in Preston Royal. Baker was the Director of Marketing at Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery in Plano.
It’s not clear, says Miles, how many of those arrested are being charged with murder. The five were apparently apprehended while attempting to highjack a Mercedes in Richardson. They were arrested, he said, on Deerwood, a street in South Dallas.
Baker was shot in the driver’s seat of her car just outside her home in the 6100 block of Royalton on Memorial Day at about 5 p.m. Neighbors heard the shots — nine total — and recorded several street videos of cars which they have been providing to police. When I called the detective investigating the case, Det. Montenegro, he told me he had had more than 100 calls Tuesday from neighbors trying to help.
I called to alert him to a story we ran four years ago, concerning gunshots fired on the same street, in the same location, against three morning joggers in January 2016.
It turns out, I learned from one of Leslie’s friends, she was one of the joggers.
