Thursday at 6:12 pm, the Marshall Police Department dispatched officers to the area of East Houston and Durel Street in reference to residents hearing gunshots.

Officers responding to the scene located a 2007 Silver Ford Taurus on Durel Street facing Houston with the trunk of the vehicle open occupied by a male slumped over behind the steering wheel.

Officers discovered the male in the driver's seat of the vehicle appeared to have multiple gunshot wounds. Marshall Fire and Ambulance responded to the scene and transported the victim, identified as Kenneth Wayne Clark, 52,  of Marshall to Good Shepard Medical Center in Marshall where he later died from his injuries. Judge Alford of Precinct 2 ordered an autopsy to determine exact cause of death.

Marshall Police processed the scene and collected several spent handgun casings and a plastic baggie of what appeared to be crack cocaine. Also recovered in the vehicle was a SKS assault rifle and a scoped deer rifle believed to be in the possession of the victim.

Preliminary investigation revealed that just prior to the shooting, three males with dark hoodies were seen running up to the vehicle and another male was seen exiting the vehicle from the passenger side dressed in a white t-shirt and dark pants. The individual who exited the vehicle is believed to have fled on foot in a northeast direction toward the old Sam Houston School. The others fled in an unknown direction.

The Marshall Police Department is requesting assistance in locating the suspects in this incident. Anyone with information can contact the Marshall Police Department Detective Division at 903-935-4540 or Crimestoppers at 903-935-9969. Any calls after hours or weekends can be directed to MPD Dispatch at 903-935-4575.
