Man Arrested for Iraqi Immigrant Slaying

Dallas police arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing 36-year-old Ahmed Al-Jumaili, a recently arrived Iraqi immigrant who was shot outside his apartment complex while watching snowfall for the first time. The suspect has been identified as 17-year-old Nykerion Nealon, who was identified with the help of a witness. Jumaili had escaped violence in Iraq and moved to Texas with his wife and brother in February. “The family was taking photos,” said Dallas Police Major Jeff Cotner. “That’s the first time they had seen snow. A pretty snowfall brings out the child in all of us.” It remains unclear whether Jumaili was hit in a random shooting or if he was a target.
