Scary thought, but Robert Wilonsky is reporting in the Dallas Morning News there’s been a bit o’ crime over at the Shelton. Yes, thee Shelton — that pricey high rise across from the Park Cities Hilton where they are still trying to sell condos for $1.3 million, don’t get me started. They have been selling these units or trying to since Nicky and Eleanor’s heyday.
Wilonsky says this came under the “criminal mischief” heading. Mischief, indeed. At 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, somebody fired a gun at The Shelton. A resident living on the 12th floor of the north side heard shattering glass, then discovered someone had indeed shot out a window. The bullet hit a concrete block and thankfully, stopped.
DPD’s report says the shot “appeared to be a random act, possible shot from the tollway, by a passing car.” Then Wilonsky says a Shelton employee said maybe it came from Northwest Highway — I will tell you that intersection of Preston and Northwest Highway is not where you want to be after midnight. Maybe NTTA traffic cams will give us a clue, but I shudder to think that Park Cities has become Beirut, where people just fire guns into the air for the heck of it.
