Temple Police Investigating Shooting Death

Temple Police have been busy with murders lately. It looks like they had another one last night.
Temple Police Sergeant Alan Teston says the shooting occurred near the intersection of South Martin Luther King Boulevard and East Avenue K, in Temple.

Police were called to the scene at 1:35 a.m. where they found a man outside of a residence, suffering from a gunshot wound.

That man was taken to Scott and White Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Thursday's shooting death is being investigated as a murder, making it the third in 2009.

Sgt. Teston tells News 10 it is very unusual for Temple to have more than one or two murders in a given year.

Some years there are no murders in the city, Teston said. Source:

These investigations are extraordinarily time consuming. I hope things will slow down for them soon.
