When Erbie saw that his ex-girlfriend was not at her home, he allegedly drove to a second home in the city of DeSoto, where he killed two people and wounded two more, WPTV reports.

Erbie, believed to be a member of the military, used “some sort of explosive device” to gain entry, and then opened fire on people inside the DeSoto home, DeSoto police spokeswoman Melissa Franks said.

Erbie allegedly moved quickly from the first shooting to the second one, but police reportedly arrested the suspect when he ran out of ammunition.

Police Arrive On Two Deadly Scenes

The first emergency call reached Dallas police at 10:30 p.m. on August 7. When police responded, they found two victims dead, while two more people were wounded, but still alive.

At 10:45 p.m., a second emergency call came in from the DeSoto home as gunshots were fired, Melissa said. There, two adults were fatally shot, and two boys, ages 11 and 13, were wounded by gunfire, she said.

Toya Smith, 43, and her 17-year-old daughter Tasmia Allen were reportedly among those who died in the shooting as did another of Toya’s children, who has not yet been identified.
