TEXARKANA, Texas —A man died Tuesday afternoon after he was shot multiple times in an Oaklawn Village parking lot on New Boston Road, according to police.

The victim has not been identified. Police are looking for a male suspect who was driving a black SUV, said Shawn Vaughn, Texarkana, Texas Police Department spokesman.

The shooting was reported about 11:35 a.m. Tuesday in the parking lot in front of Harbor Freight and behind Whataburger, Vaughn said.

After he was shot, the victim managed to drive his car to the front of Whataburger where it struck a tree and then rolled back in front of the restaurant.

"There are two crime scenes," Vaughn said."The back part of the parking lot where the shooting happened and where the car came to rest at Whataburger."

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he died shortly after arriving, according to police.

Police do not believe anyone else was injured.

Preliminary information does not indicate the victim worked anywhere in Oaklawn Village.

The shooting is the first homicide of the year for TTPD. The last fatal shooting of 2020 was about two weeks ago on December 30 in the Chili's parking lot.

No arrests have been made in that shooting.

Police do not believe there is any connection between the two shootings but continue to investigate, Vaughn said.

Anyone with any information on either of these shootings, is asked to call TTPD at 903-798-3116 or Crimestoppers at 903-793-STOP.
