Teen found shot to death in car attended local college
A teenager found shot to death in a car Wednesday night in a North Waco neighborhood was identified Thursday as Tyler McKinney, 19, of Waco.
McKinney was a student at McLennan Community College, a spokeswoman confirmed Thursday.
An on-scene commander said officers responded to the intersection of Gregory Lane and Cedar Mountain Drive at around 8:10 p.m. Wednesday after neighbors reported a single gunshot was fired.
Officers found the 19-year-old male victim inside of a white Ford sedan parked in front of two vacant houses.
He had been shot in the torso.
No guns were found at the scene.
An autopsy was ordered.
Police are trying to determine whether the deadly shooting could be linked to an incident late Wednesday night in which a North Waco resident was robbed at gunpoint in the driveway of his home.
