ACTIVE HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY:

On July 28, 2017 at 11:59 pm, the Abilene Police Department received multiple 911 calls regarding a injured subject at an apartment complex in the 1000 block of South Clack. The victim was transported to Abilene Regional Medical Center by private automobile. Patrol officers were dispatched to both the scene at 1000 South Clack and ARMC.

Upon arrival at ARMC, responding officers located a victim of a gunshot wound in the emergency room. Despite the best efforts of medical staff, the victim was pronounced deceased just before 3:00 am.

The victim has been identified as Bronson Boyles, age 19, of Abilene.
Mr. Boyles was transported to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
Investigative personnel responded to the scene and began an investigation shortly after the original 911 calls.

During the course of that investigation, detectives have interviewed multiple people who were in the area of the shooting at the time.

Based on those interviews, it appears Mr. Boyles came into contact with an unknown person while walking from one apartment building to another. Some witnesses describe hearing an argument followed by a single gunshot.

As of now, the description of a person of interest in this case is as follows:
A light skinned black male or Hispanic male, approximately 5'6" in height, in his early 20's, with a large hairstyle. There is no further description. This man was seen in the area around the time of the shooting.

The Abilene Police Department is asking anyone with information about this case to please come forward and speak with investigators. It is likely there were other potential witnesses in the area at the time of the shooting who may have seen something of value.
If you have information about this case, please contact the Abilene Police Department at 325-673-8331 or Crime Stoppers at 676-TIPS (8477).

This case is still under active investigation and we will not be able to provide further information on the case for the time being.

This is Abilene's 4th homicide of the year.

Respectfully,

Sgt. Lynn Beard
Abilene Police Department
