A woman and a teenage boy were killed and five people were wounded Saturday night and early Sunday in unrelated shootings around Dallas.

No arrests have been made in the shootings.

Just before 7 p.m. Saturday, witnesses told police two people were fighting outside a shopping center in the 2200 block of Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas.

They fired at each other and struck 26-year-old Kenzia Perry. She was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where she died, police said.

Kennan Dawson, 16, was shot in the head early Sunday in South Dallas and killed.

About 10 p.m., officers responded to a shooting in South Dallas. Two men said they were standing outside a convenienc­e store in the 4300 block of Malcolm X Boulevard when they got in an argument with a third person, who shot at them and fled.

The two victims were taken to Baylor University Medical Center with injuries not believed to be lifethreat­ening.

Fifteen minutes later, officers responded to another shooting call less than a mile away in the 2700 block of Lenway Street. The victim had been shot in the foot and was taken to Baylor with non-life-threatenin­g injuries, police said.

About 1:10 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a shooting near U.S. Highway 175 and Railroad Avenue, where a man said someone shot him in the leg. He was taken to Baylor with injuries not believed to be life-threatenin­g.

In the early morning, police responded about 3:15 a.m. to the 3900 block of Mehalia Drive, near Bonnie View Road, in southeast Oak Cliff, where a man had been shot in the buttocks.
