Josefine Griggs killed Aug. 19, 2014

"He's coming, he's coming," Josefine Griggs told a 911 call taker, pleaing for help from a northwest Dallas motel.

Moments later, the call taker heard gunshots. Griggs, 33, was dead. 

Police say her boyfriend, Martin Duque Reyes, 36, shot her multiple times while she was on the phone with 911. 

Reyes, still at large, goes by multiple aliases, including Jose Rios, Jose Reyes, Victor Castillo and Juan Hernandez. Police say he's likely to be armed and dangerous. They urged anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-373-8477.
