The Boulder Police Department is investigating a homicide in north Boulder that occurred Friday night.
According to two Boulder Police Department press releases, police responded to a call of an injured person around 8:00 p.m. at the 1200 block of Sumac Avenue.
Boulder resident William Dwayne Andrews, 47, was found dead on the scene. The victim was shot at close range, twice in the chest and once in the head.
Witnesses reported hearing three shots at the time of the shooting. Three spent shell casings were found near the victim’s body, according to police.
Police also reported that “based on the evidence developed so far, it appears that this was not a random incident.”
Police were searching for a late-model, four-door beige sedan leaving the scene “at a high rate of speed,” according to one of the press releases.
However, police reported Saturday that they had located and impounded a suspect vehicle, though it is not clear if it is the same car.
The car backed out of a driveway across the street from where the victim was found, turned west on Sumac Ave and then south on Broadway. The car has not yet been searched.
Police are also investigating whether the car belonged to residents living near the scene of the crime.
