Lubbock Man Shot to Death in His Driveway

Late Saturday night a 28-year-old man was shot to death in his driveway.

John Wilkerson was found dead with multiple gun shot wounds in this driveway in the 2700 block of East 2nd street around 11:30 Saturday night. Witnesses say they saw a vehicle leave the scene but police were unable to provide any suspect information.

Now a message written in chalk by family members covers the spot where Wilkerson's body was found. Wilkerson's family says it's important for them to remember their brother's character and not how his life tragically ended.

"He wasn't perfect by far but his heart was big and his spirit was big," says Ashley Wilkerson, Wilkerson's sister.

"I just want to say to my brother, I love you," says Keevonya Wilkerson, Wilkerson's sister.

Wilkerson's sisters say they have no idea who would have killed their brother.

If you have any information on the murder of Wilkerson, you are urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.

This brings the number of murders committed in Lubbock in 2007 to 15. Thirteen murders were committed in 2006.
