At least five people have been wounded and two are confirmed dead in an early morning mass shooting in Deep Ellum.

Dallas Police say just as the Deep Ellum bars were closing about 2:00 a.m. Friday there was gunfire reported near Elm and Crowdus just a block from Malcolm X Blvd.

Police say one man was approached by two men while standing on the sidewalk - when they all pulled out guns and started shooting.

Police cars, fire trucks and ambulances were soon swarming over the area, sorting out what happened and who was hit.

Officials say many of the wounded were rushed to nearby Baylor hospital.

The men who died are 42-year-old Jermaine Lewis, and 31-year-old
Quintin Lowe.

Dallas Police believe they have detained everyone involved in the shooting, but no charges have been announced yet.

There are a lot of security cameras in that part of Deep Ellum so police should have that resource to help sort things out.
