Cameron Turner is a 22-year-old man who was arrested on October 14, 2023, in Dallas, Texas, for the shooting of three people at the State Fair of Texas.
The motive for the shooting is still under investigation, but police have said that it does not appear to be random.
Dallas police arrested Cameron Turner on three charges of aggravated assault, according to a news release from police.
Investigators believe he opened fire targeting another man and hit two other people.
All three were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The victims have not been publicly identified. Dallas police announced on Twitter around 8:05 p.m. that one suspect, now identified as Turner, was in custody.
The shooting prompted the fair to begin an emergency evacuation. Police said the shots were fired in the food court inside the Tower Building around 7:45 p.m. Saturday.
But video from the fair showed people in all different parts of the park running to find exits.
The fair increased security after last year a hoax caused panic among fairgoers. In that instance, someone shouted that there was a shooter when there was no such threat.
Still, the fair said this year it instituted new measures including high-tech weapons scanners and increased security personnel, including uniformed and plainclothes police.
Fair administration also decided to require anyone under the age of 18 have a chaperon 21 or older after 5 p.m.
It’s unclear how the increase of Dallas police in the park impacted the response time of officers to the shooting.
