A 19-year-old man died after a shooting early Saturday morning in a parking lot next to the Whataburger restaurant at Valley Mills and Lake Air drives, Waco police announced.
Officers responded at about 1:50 a.m. to an alarm call at the restaurant and learned when they arrived that there had been a shooting in the lot next to the restaurant, Waco police Officer Garen Bynum said in a Facebook post.
“A very short time later, officers learned that a 19-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds had been taken to a local hospital by private vehicle and dropped off in the emergency room area of the hospital,” Bynum wrote. “Hospital staff was unable to revive the 19-year-old, at which time he was pronounced dead.”
The shooting remains under investigation, and anyone with information should call the Waco Police Department and ask for Detective Reyes, Bynum said.
