Ashley Moody slams Dem-led cities for soft on crime policies: ‘You have to confront these things’
Florida Attorney Gen. Ashley Moody weighs in on rampant crime in the United States and how Florida’s ‘Be A Hero’ program helped crime drop to a 50-year low in The Sunshine State.
The family of a 36-year-old father in Dallas, Texas, say he became the city’s first homicide victim of 2023 after he was shot after trying to dissuade neighbors from shooting guns into the air to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
The family of Dylan Reeves told KDFW-TV that he left his home on Mar Vista Trail in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas to talk to neighbors who were shooting off guns to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
“He said, ‘I’ve got to stop it somehow. My kids are going to get hurt, you know?'” Reeves’ father Donald told the outlet. “I said, ‘well, son you be sure to call the police first.’”
Reeves said his son went to the neighbors house just after midnight to tell the crowd to stop shooting their guns when he was shot himself.

“He said he was going to go confront these people,” Reeves said. “He was tired of it.”
Reeves said his son was shot multiple times.
The Dallas Police Department told Fox News Digital that the incident was a “fight that escalated to a murder” and that the department is investigating the cause of the fight.

“Further investigation determined Miguel Sereno, 18, shot the man after a fight,” a Dallas police spokesperson said. “The suspect left the scene before officers arrived. A warrant for murder has been issued for his arrest and police continue to look for Sereno.”
Police provided a photo of Sereno to Fox News Digital and said that anyone with information on his whereabouts should call 911 and “not take police action.”
“I would think if you’re defending yourself you wouldn’t run, you know?” Reeves said about the suspect.
