This is one of the most senseless acts you will read about this week.

Tyrese Simmons, 19, turned himself in just hours after Dallas police identified him as the suspect in the death of Brandoniya Bennett. She was fatally shot while inside her apartment at the Roseland Townhomes in the 3500 block of Munger Avenue on Wednesday evening.

Police said Simmons considered himself a rapper and was upset about another rapper, 17-year-old Benny Fountain, who insulted him in his lyrics. According to police, the 19-year-old retaliated by firing shots into what he thought was Fountain’s apartment.

One witness heard Simmons state that he was going to shoot at the residence, according to the affidavit.

Instead, it was the wrong unit and the 9-year-old child was struck by his bullets, killing her.

During a news conference Thursday afternoon, police identified Simmons as the suspect and released a picture of him. Later that evening, he turned himself in to authorities and was booked on a capital murder charge.

Simmons remains in jail with a bond set at $500,000.

Brandoniya’s family described her as a free spirit and that she was looking forward to starting the fourth grade on Monday.

Dallas police have made a second arrest in connection with murder of Brandoniya Bennett, a 9-year-old girl killed when someone fired into her Old East Dallas apartment Aug. 14.

Davonte Benton, 19, was arrested and charged with capital murder Thursday after an interview with detectives. Tyrese Simmons, the first person arrested in charged in the case, remains in the Dallas County Jail on the same charge.

That's Benton on the left.

It is not clear if police expect to file charges against anyone else in the case.

Benton, like Simmons, is being held in the Dallas County Jail on $500,000 bond.

"Beef", "Dissed", and "everybody's chocolate drop"

The apparent object of Tyrese Simmon's homicidal rage turned himself in.
A second suspect has been arrested by Dallas police in connection with the fatal shooting of a 9-year-old girl.

Detectives say they interviewed 19-year-old Davonte Benton and determined he was involved in the August shooting.

On Thursday, Benton was booked in jail on a capital murder charge. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Last month, police say Brandoniya Bennett was struck by gunfire of a gang-related shooting while sitting on her couch inside her apartment at the Roseland Townhomes.

Brandoniya died at Baylor University Medical Center.

The little girl was supposed to start school the next week. She was known to many as "Niya" or "Niy-Niy." Her grandmother called her "everybody's chocolate drop."

"She was the sweetest thing," said Tonya Elder of her 9-year-old granddaughter.

Authorities say that bullet was fired because two rappers "dissed each other."

On Aug. 14, authorities say Tyrese Simmons, 19, an amateur rapper, believed he was targeting a rival rapper he had a beef with when he opened fire toward Brandoniya's home.

Police said that Simmons shot at the wrong apartment.

Simmons turned himself in the day after the shooting. He remains in custody at the Dallas County jail on a capital murder charge.

What the fuck is it with rappers always trying to kill each other, be it in Dallas, LA, Chicago, or Baltimore? Hell, even overseas the rap/hip-hop artist have a high murder rate.

I just realized there must be two threads on this, because this is not the one I posted an update in yesterday. Please merge these threads when you find the other one. Thanks.

DALLAS - A Dallas man accused of capital murder in the death of a nine-year-old girl said he was innocent in an exclusive interview with FOX 4.

Davonte Benton is one of two capital murder suspects arrested in the Brandoniya Bennett case. He was taken into custody last week, nearly a month after the girl’s death.

“They was like, they have evidence against me. There was people that say I was there,” Benton said in an interview at the Dallas County Jail on Tuesday.
