Here are the top three stories in Dallas today:

  1. Three men, LeQuazio Dade, Kylan Owens, and Anthony Primers, have been arrested by Dallas police in connection with an attempted carjacking that took place in December 2022. During the incident, Dade approached a victim with a rifle, demanding the victim’s keys and wallet. A fight broke out and the victim’s shots were fired, causing Dade to flee with Owens and Primers. The three have been charged with aggravated robbery of an individual. (FOX 4 News Dallas-Fort Worth)
  2. Eight teenage chefs from Dallas’ Café Momentum traveled to Arizona to attend Super Bowl LVII and raise awareness for juvenile justice reform. Café Momentum is a restaurant that hires and trains young people who have been incarcerated, providing them with a career in the culinary arts. At the Super Bowl, the teenage chefs cooked hot honey chicken and biscuits, sharing their inspiring stories of getting a second chance in life. (WFAA.com)
  3. A Texas man, Richard Acosta, has been convicted of capital murder for his involvement in the fatal shooting of three teenagers, committed by his 14-year-old son. The Dallas jury found Acosta guilty of the December 2021 shooting deaths of Xavier Gonzalez, Ivan Noyala, and Rafael Garcia. The law in Texas allows accomplices to be charged even if they did not commit the crime, and Acosta faces life in prison without the possibility of parole. (MSN)
