Authorities say a 19-year-old was fatally shot near the Missouri State University campus in Springfield.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that police responded around 9:15 p.m. Friday after a 911 caller heard gunshots and found Kenneth Wright wounded. Police say Wright was transported to a local hospital, where he later died. He was not a Missouri State student.

Police haven’t identified a suspect and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
