Homicide 24th and Lawn

Tonight just after 11pm officers were dispatched to the area of 24th and Lawn on a sound of shots call.

On arrival officers were directed to the area of a house on 24th street just east of the intersection.

At that residence officers located an adult male shooting victim, unresponsive, behind the house.

Officers summoned EMS to the scene, they transported the victim to the hospital where he was declared deceased.

People at the scene when officers arrived told them that the victim had an interaction with an unknown suspect, in front of the residence that led to shots being fired that struck the victim.
