On 11/27/2023 just after 11 am, officers were dispatched to 10th and Grand on a reported medical nature unknown.

Upon arrival, officers located a young male juvenile suffering from apparent bodily trauma. EMS was on scene and pronounced the juvenile deceased.

There is no one in custody at this time and we have no reason to believe there is an immediate risk to the public.

There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information provided to TIPS which leads to an arrest in the case.
