Fourth arrest made for death of Dallas community leader

Police in Fort Worth, Texas arrested a fourth man for the murder of Dallas community leader Jin Shin in an August 2022 shooting. 

Keeton Sheppard, 34, was charged with the murder of the Korean American leader on Feb. 21, Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. 

Sheppard is the fourth suspect to be arrested, following Quamon Deshun White in January and two others, Kameron Taylor and Markynn Dmorous West, in 2022. 

“I was just relieved knowing that person was off the street, and he’s being held accountable,” Shin’s close friend Nikki Senephoumy told FOX 4. “No matter what he’s not coming back to us, but at least it gives us some kind of comfort knowing that these people will be off the street.”

Shin was killed in a shooting after a minor car accident escalated into an argument, according to WFAA. An affidavit states that Shin was eventually surrounded by eight people and was stopped from walking away.

Shin retrieved his handgun from his car when West opened fire. Shin attempted multiple times to run away from the scene, but was stopped. 

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, police stated that Shin did not retrieve his handgun until “he had been punched by two subjects, his car keys stolen, and mobbed by a large group of hostile individuals.”

Friends and family celebrate Shin’s legacy and demand justice, Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. A GoFundMe fundraiser was set up by friends to help Shin’s family with funeral and legal expenses and has raised more than $100,000.
