The broad-daylight assault, viewed by a crowd of bystanders, ended when the attacker, joined by other men, knocked the writhing woman unconscious.
Sadly, Booker was the victim of another violent act this weekend - one that claimed her life. During the attack, the suspects used homophobic slurs, police said. In the video, Booker can be seen being repeatedly kicked and punched by a group of men. Edward Thomas was charged with aggravated assault.
Investigators said there was no apparent link to the 12 April beating Booker suffered after she was involved in a minor traffic accident.
When people started to gather, someone in the crowd said they'd give Thomas $200 if he would beat Booker, police said in the arrest warrant affidavit, according to the Dallas News.
The shooting occurred during what has been a deadly month in Dallas. Past year alone, at least 25 trans Americans were murdered-and like Booker (pictured below), the majority of 2018's victims were transgender women of color.
Dallas police Monday didn't elaborate on the death of Muhlaysia Booker.
Following Thomas' arrest, Dallas police Lt. Vincent Weddington, commander of the crimes against persons unit, said that the video "shocks the conscience of anyone who looks at this video and it is something that the Dallas Police Department takes seriously".

"Upon arrival, officers found the complainant lying face down in the street - deceased from homicidal violence", Weddington said during a news conference on Sunday.
"This time I can stand before you; whereas in other scenarios, we are at a memorial". The attack was flagged as a hate crime given that transphobic epithets were screamed at her during the beating.
Booker spoke out in the days after the attack to thank the community for supporting her.
