Local News

KILLEEN, Texas -Killeen Police say the person who died from a Memorial Day shooting was a 16-year-old boy. The teenager succumbed to his injuries Tuesday, with Justice of the Peace Gregory Johnson pronouncing him dead at 3:02 p.m.

The victim did not have any identification on him, so Medical Examiners at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas used his fingerprints. His name is not being released at this time because of his age.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division are asking if anyone has any information or video from this incident, to contact the Police Department at (254) 501-8800.
