Lawrence Police tackled their last murder of 2017 just a few short hours before the start of the new year. 

murderWitnesses told Lawrence Police that someone was shooting out the windows of a minivan on Reservoir Street near Hilltop Ave on the outskirts of the Bellivue Cemetery shortly after 9pm. 

When police arrived they found a man shot to death, covered in blood, and blood covering the interior of the vehicle.

Detectives were called to the scene immediately.

 

Police would not say if they believe this shooting is related to the drive-by shooting on Springfield Street Friday night. 

The State police were called to the scene as was the state’s medical examiner to retrieve the body. 

If officially ruled a murder, this would close out 2017 for the City of Lawrence at 12 murders.
