Second arrest made in death of community leader

A second arrest has been made in connection with the shooting death of Dallas community leader Jin Shin.

WFAA reports Shin was shot and killed on Aug. 15 at the intersection of South University Drive and the Interstate 30 entrance ramp. The shooting occurred after a minor accident led to an argument.

Police at the time believed the crash involved a Jeep driven by Shin and a sedan carrying a driver and two passengers.

According to the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, police arrested the first suspect, 28-year-old Markynn Dmorous West, on September 7. Authorities believe he was the shooter. On Friday, December 9, police arrested Kameron Taylor but the warrant detailing his alleged involvement was not immediately available.

According to WFAA, an affidavit claims that Shin was surrounded by six people following the accident. At one point, one of the men in the group punched Shin in the back. The affidavit says that Shin attempted to return to his Jeep multiple times but was stopped before eventually being shot.

Friends have set up a GoFundMe to help Shin’s family pay for funeral expenses and legal fees. The remaining money will go to his 14-year-old daughter.
