Dallas police are investigating the shooting death of an 18-year-old former Highland Park High School student who was gunned down in the Whole Foods Market parking garage at the Shops at Park Lane.
Joseph Anthony Pintucci was found slumped over in the driver’s seat of a white 2002 Lincoln sedan at 10:07 p.m. Thursday and rushed to the hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to the Dallas Police Department blog.
Jon Dahlander, HPISD chief of staff and director of communication, said Pintucci had transferred out of the district in March 2018.
“Grief counselors were available at the high school today to assist any individuals who may have been upset by this tragedy,” Dahlander said. “We offer our sincere condolences to the family.”
Pintucci’s uncle Ben Harrington, of University Park, posted on Facebook: “My beautiful, wonderful nephew Joey, who I have raised since he was 6, was murdered last night aged 18. No words.”
