Three Men Are Wanted in a Drive-By at Lolita's That Left a Man Paralyzed

Lukas Da Cruz, 21, was standing outside Lolita's on Lemmon Avenue in the early morning hours of August 16 when a silver Honda drove past. According to a police report and a Facebook account, someone in the car fired a shot from a .40-caliber pistol, hitting him in the back near the right shoulder blade.

Da Cruz is now paralyzed, and police are looking for the person who shot him. They released the above photos of three men they want brought in for questioning.

Dallas Crime Stoppers is offering $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of anyone involved in the crime. Anyone with information about the suspects should call 214-373-8477.

In the meantime, friends are raising money to help cover Da Cruz's medical bills.
