A Dallas male-to-female transgender who was assaulted in a viral video in April was shot to death early Saturday morning.
Muhlaysia Booker, 23, was fatally shot in the 7200 block of Valley Glen Drive around 6:40 a.m. Saturday, according to NBC 5.
No arrests have been made in the murder case.
Booker was assaulted outside an apartment complex near downtown Dallas on April 12. The assault was captured on video that went viral on social media. Police quickly arrested Edward Thomas, 29, and charged him with assault and a possible hate crime. Thomas bonded out of jail and his whereabouts are unknown.

Police say Booker was involved in a fender bender outside the apartment complex on April 12. Residents prevented Booker from fleeing the scene of the accident and an argument ensued.
Thomas is seen on video punching and kicking Booker into submission. Several women carried Booker to a waiting vehicle. The victim sustained facial fractures and a fractured arm and was released from a hospital.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said the brutal beating appeared to be "mob violence" against a transgender.
"Those who did this do not represent how Dallasites feel about our thriving LGBTQ community," Rawlings said in a statement. "We will not stand for this kind of behavior."
The police contacted the FBI to determine whether the assault rose to the level of a federal hate crime. The FBI did not disclose their findings.
Police say Booker's murder is not currently being investigated as a hate crime.
