DALLAS, TEXAS (FOX) — Dallas police have identified a murder suspect in the shooting deaths of a Dallas couple.
Investigators said Abey Belette Girma followed Yayehyirad Lemma and Yenenesh Desta home from their restaurant, the Desta Ethiopian Restaurant on northern Greenville Avenue, Wednesday night. He allegedly shot them because they had disrespected him.
The couple died on the door step of their M Street home just after midnight.
Neighbors who heard gunfire called police to the home in the 5700 block of Marquita Street. Inside, a relative was caring for the couple’s 1-year-old son.
Earlier on Thursday, Oak Farms Dairy offered $10,000 to whoever had information leading to the arrest and indictment of any suspects.
However, a few hours later, Dallas police announced the reward offer had been retracted and that “detectives are working on potential information.”
The suspect, Abey Belete Girma, has not yet been arrested.
