A man has died after being shot on his front porch.
Police were called to the 600 block of Tyler around 1:50 Friday morning on a shooting call.
The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Patrick Lightbourn Jr. of Topeka. He did not survive wounds sustained in the incident and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The crime scene, located at 620 SW Tyler, is still being held as the investigation continues. The gunshots are believed to have been fired from a green Dodge Neon 4-door occupied by several people. Evidence may indicate this was a targeted act and not a random act of violence.
Anyone with knowledge of this incident is asked to contact the Topeka Police Department at (785) 368-9551 or Crime Stoppers at (785) 234-0007.
Police say there is currently no evidence that this shooting is related to last week’s shooting in Topeka.
