Sharneen Norman

The daughter of famed Dallas Cowboy Pettis Norman was found shot to death inside her downtown Dallas apartment, according to a report on NBC 5.

Sharneen “Shawn” Norman was very close to her father, who called police to enter his daughter's apartment when he hadn't heard from her in several days.

Police found Sharneen Norman dead from a gunshot wound at the DP&L Flats apartments.

From NBCPhiladelphia.com:

Norman said his daughter had recently moved back to Texas from New York where she worked as a music executive for a record company. Now living in Dallas, Shawn Norman was working for her family business.

"She was my first baby. We had a great relationship. From the moment she was born, she was a daddy’s baby," Pettis Norman said fondly of his daughter.

Pettis Norman said it doesn’t appear anyone forced their way into his daughter’s apartment and said police are searching for surveillance video to see who could’ve entered the building around the time of her death.

Norman said he’s choosing not to be angry, instead focus on what possible facts he can gather to move forward.

"So I’m not angry. Obviously I’m very hurt my daughter’s not here, but there’s no need for me to be angry because that’s not going to solve the problem," he said.

Police are asking for the public's help in solving Sharneen's murder case.

  • GottaBigOne

    I LOVE the way the father is handling his daughter's passing . . . NOT letting emotions (at this time) get to him as there will plenty of time for those - - later!

    RIP - condolences to this family, like Luvn said....especially around the holidays.

    @RoseGarden,

    Alas roses.....it has happened again. A YOUNG, UNARMED, BLACK MALE was gunned down by a WHITE POLICE OFFICER on this past Tuesday night in Arizona after police mistook his pill bottle for a gun.

    Bear in mind.....Arizona was the last state to pass the national Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Think about that.

    Jenie, I see what you mean. When I read about another Black man being gunned down, my heart just fell to the ground. My heart just hearts. We still haven't gotten over Trayvon Martin or Oscar Grant or Amallo Diallou or Sean Bell...........and now this? God, are we going to endure another 300 years of this modern day lynching?
