Dallas Man Accused In Slaying Of 3 At Club

DALLAS - Authorities have identified a 45-year-old Dallas man as a suspect in the deaths of three people fatally shot outside a nightclub.

Rigoberto Vazquez Hernandez was being held without bond Monday at the Dallas County jail on a charge of capital murder. He turned himself in Sunday.

Police say a fight early Sunday morning involving 22-year-old Claudia Balderas and another woman spilled out of the nightclub in the Oak Lawn neighborhood.

Hernandez became involved and police say he shot Balderas, 27-year-old Francisco Martinez and an unidentified man. Police say Hernandez was the only person armed and that at one point he walked away only to return to fire more shots.

The incident was captured on surveillance video. A photo taken from the video was shown to a witness who identified Hernandez.
