(CNN)Dallas police believe three recent shootings at Asian-run businesses in the area may be connected, and may be hate-motivated, Chief Edgardo Garcia said in a Friday news conference.The latest shooting took place on Wednesday at a Korean-owned hair salon, police said. At the time, authorities said a suspect ran into the business, shouted something and began shooting. Three women suffered non-life-threatening injuries."At that time in the investigation, we did not have any indication that this crime was hate-motivated. As of this afternoon, that has changed," the chief said Friday.After reviewing two other incidents, police now believe there's a connection, partly because of the suspect's vehicle, the chief said.In Wednesday's shooting, a witness described the suspect running back to a red, older-style minivan and speeding away, police said.Read MoreA day earlier, a suspect in a burgundy van or car drove by and shot into an Asian-run business, police said. Three people were in the building but were not injured.And roughly a month before those incidents, on April 2, a vehicle drove past a strip mall of Asian-run businesses in what witnesses described as a red minivan, police said.Dallas police reached out to partners including the FBI "out of an abundance of caution," to make them aware of their findings, and have also reached out to other Texas agencies to see if there may have been any other similar incidents, Garcia said Friday."To safeguard our community, we will be utilizing camera trailers in certain areas and every patrol station has been advised to increase visibility patrols in the areas of our Asian community," Garcia said. "Most important, we are turning to every resident of the city of Dallas to keep an eye out and safeguard our city. Hate has no place here."Authorities are also asking for the community's help in identifying the suspect.So far, Dallas police have described the suspect in Wednesday's shooting as "a Black male approximately 5'7" to 5'10", with a thin build, curly medium-length hair and a connecting beard.""We need to get this person in custody," the chief said. "We need our community's help."

Body Found At Delco Auto Body Shop Owned By Missing Man: Police
Marple Township police have yet to confirm the identity of the male body found at Broomall Auto Body on Media Line Road, but say the clothing closely resembles that of George Hughes Jr. at the time of his disappearance.
Hughes, 57, was last seen leaving work on foot around 11 a.m. on Monday, May 16, and later spending time at the Edgmont Shopping Center in Newtown Square between 2 and 4 p.m., police said. His car was left at the shop.
His family reported him missing out of concern for his well-being because he takes medication on a daily basis, according to police.
An autopsy will be performed to confirm the victim's identity and cause of death.
The incident remains under investigation, police said.
