Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson — says Hatcher was shot Sunday night on Minter Avenue. Then later died.
“Got shot multiple times. Taken to the hospital,” he said.
“She died before she was air-lifted to another hospital. This is one of those killings that really hurt. It hurts deep. Cause she was so young. Had a whole life ahead of her.”
