Waco Shooting at Ruby Avenue Now a Homicide Investigation After One Victim Succumbs to Injuries

Sondre Johnson, the 19-year-old shot over the weekend, has, unfortunately, succumbed to his injuries. As a result of his passing, this investigation is now considered a homicide. A suspect has not been identified at this time.

"This type of violence saddens and angers me. Using a weapon to resolve disputes often results in tragedy for the victim, the family of the victim, and our community. It also results in negative lifetime consequences for the suspect and his or her family. Although overall crime continues to decline in our city, incidents resulting from high-risk lifestyles continue to happen. Many of the victims and offenders of this lifestyle are young people whose lives are cut short by death or eventual prosecution and incarceration. We are much better than this. The Waco Police Department will continue to work diligently to identify and hold accountable the person or persons responsible for the death of Sondre Johnson, and in our efforts to stop this cycle of violence. I am asking anyone with information regarding this murder or the potential for further violence, to contact the Waco Police Department before another young person’s life is lost.", Waco Police Chief Sheryl Victorian said in a statement.

This incident has been very fluid, and the information Special Crimes Detectives receive will be vital for the investigation. Currently, minimal information has been collected that the Waco Police Department needs to serve justice for Sondre Johnson and his family. For anyone with information, please call the Waco Police Department at 254-750-7500 or Crime Stoppers and submit an anonymous tip at 254-753-HELP(4357).

This is the 8th homicide investigation of 2023 in Waco, Texas.
