Lamar was found inside the home unconscious with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.

According to investigators, Lamar was renting a room at the house after moving to Anna within the last three months.

Police are following several leads, and they believe Lamar knew the people responsible for the shooting. Investigators stress this was a targeted attack, and they do not believe there is any ongoing danger to the neighborhood.

“Anytime somebody moves from another area, you always got to question what baggage they’re going to bring with them,” said Lt. Jeff Caponera with Anna Police. “And clearly in this case there was some excess baggage brought with him, and we’re left to deal with it.”

This is a first homicide in Anna since the police department formed in 2005. The sheriff’s department and the Texas Rangers are helping with the investigation.
