The victim is not a Baylor student, authorities said, but police havent been able to identify him because he didnt have an ID or cell phone.

“He had no identification on him, no personal information of any kind on him,” said Waco PD Sgt. John Allovio. “We searched our database and werent successful so were going to have to wait for him to be identified at a later time.”

They believe the shooting happened shorty before the Baylor maintenance worker doing his rounds drove by and found the body.

“It looked like the murder had just occurred,” said Allovio. “There are neighbors who heard gunshots but didnt see anything.”

“With the exception of a few, this is pretty much a Baylor housing area now for rentals,” said Allovio. “It doesnt look like a random act.”

Police responded to a shooting at around 3:30 p.m. Monday at the Villages apartments at 1100 North 6th St.

The victim was taken from the shooting scene from a private vehicle whose driver called 911 from a store parking lot at North 17th Street and West Waco Drive.

The victim was transferred to an ambulance and then was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center.
