OAK HILLS, Calif. (VVNG.com) – Homicide investigators need your help in tracking down the suspects in the murder of 19-year-old Kyle McConnell, of Victorville.
McConnell’s life was cut short when he was gunned down outside an ‘advertised’ house party in the 7700 block of Foley Road in Oak Hills on January 6, 2018. McConnell was rushed to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
In a Thursday afternoon sheriff’s news release, officials said they’ve located a second victim from the night of the shooting.
