Published on October 29, 2020

On October 28, 2020, at 8:56 pm, the Winchester Police Department (WPD) responded to a parking lot in the 500 block of Adams Drive for a male suffering from one gunshot wound to the chest. When officers arrived on scene, they found the male, identified as Kevin Michael Riley, 29, of Winchester, lying in the parking lot. Officers immediately began emergency aid efforts until Winchester Fire and Rescue arrived on scene. Riley was transported to the Winchester Medical Center where he later succumbed to his wounds.   

WPD Detectives processed the scene for evidence, which included the vehicle, a 2009 Chevy Cobalt, in which Riley had been a passenger. Officers interviewed witnesses who stated the suspect fired the single shot from a dark colored, possibly blue, BMW sport utility vehicle and then fled the scene. A person of interest has been identified and detectives are following up on leads to track down the male.    

Anyone with information is asked to contact the WPD at 540-662-4131 or anonymously through the P3 tip app or by calling 540-665-TIPS.
