Flower Mound Police are investigating the shooting death of a Justin man Wednesday.

Officers responded to an investigation of possible gunshots in the 500 block of Flower Mound Road at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Lamont Darnell White, 54, was found with multiple gunshot wounds, including one to his head, sitting inside a white Mazda sedan in a parking lot, police said.

White was transported by CareFlite air ambulance to Methodist Dallas Medical Center in critical condition.

“We learned he was dead at 4:45 a.m. this morning [Wednesday] from the hospital,” said police Capt. Kurt Labhart.

In light of national recent sparks of random violence, Flower Mound Police Department officials said they want to assure the community the incident didn’t fall into that category.

“We don’t feel this is a random act of violence,” Labhart said. “The preliminary investigation shows the killer had some type — we don’t know what — affiliation with the victim.”

White’s body is currently awaiting a full autopsy with the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Labhart urges anyone with information about this investigation to contact the Flower Mound Police Department at 972-539-0525 or the Anonymous Crime Tip Line at 972-874-3307.
