BILLINGS — “The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said Monday 15-year-old Khoen Parker was the victim of a homicide Sunday morning near Castle Rock Park in the Billings Heights.
Parker, a sophomore at Billings Senior High School, was shot in a parking lot on the southern border of the park, according to the Billings Police Department. He was then taken to an area hospital by an unknown person in an unknown vehicle, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Neighbors said the parking lot had become a popular late-night gathering spot. BPD officers responded to calls about the shooting around 2:00 a.m. Sunday. They did not find any witnesses but did find multiple shell casings in the area. BPD detectives have not announced any details on the active investigation – not about a specific suspect or if they are looking for multiple persons.
A local hospital called dispatch shortly after, around 2:20 a.m., to report a victim had been dropped off at the emergency room. The victim, a 15-year-old boy from Billings, later died.”
