A Killeen man was fatally shot after answering his front door early Tuesday morning.

Killeen police responded to a report of shots fired in the Rainbow Circle neighborhood at 1:20 a.m. Bystanders directed officers to 1800 block of Windward Drive, where they found the victim, 22-year-old Tirell Deshawn Turner.

According to the preliminary investigation, Turner answered a knock at the door and several shots were fired. It remains unclear whether he knew the suspect.
