Dallas Police arrested a 22-year-old local man for the Sunday night murder of Martha Teran. Lonzell Hunter, according to police, shot Teran, killing her in the parking lot of Dallas' Medieval Times on I-35.
Teran, 42, was in the parking lot to sell an iPhone 7, according to police. Hunter, DPD says, met Teran online and agreed to purchase the phone. Deputy Chief Thomas Castro said Teran took appropriate precautions setting up the sale — meeting Hunter in a public place while it was still light out.
