LAWRENCE, Ind. (WISH) – Police and family members hope the public can help identify the people who may be responsible for a 19-year-old’s death in Lawrence.

Kyle Jobin, of McCordsville, was shot in the head after a witness saw his vehicle surrounded by people pounding on the windows around 2:30 a.m. Jan. 4. Jobin died the next day at the hospital.

The incident happened at the Marathon gas station, 7013 E. 56th St. A witness saw Jobin get back in his vehicle after buying cigarettes. Then, four black males got out of a white SUV and started knocking on windows and doors, trying to get inside. One of the people from the SUV was wearing a maroon hooded sweatshirt, but no other descriptions were available.

A witness drove to another gas station to find an officer, but when the officer arrived, Jobin had already been shot.

Jobin’s family members have arranged a candlelight vigil for 6 p.m. Friday at the Marathon gas station.

Anyone with information about the crime should contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS or text ‘IndyCS’ plus the tip to 274637. Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips.
