Winter Haven police are investigating after a 21-year-old was shot and killed in bed over the weekend.
Officers were called to the area of Avenue V Northeast and 5th Street Northeast around 4:30 a.m. Saturday for a report of multiple gunshots. As they were responding, another call came in saying someone had been shot at a home on Avenue V in the area.
Police arrived at the home and found 21-year-old Darnell Powell on a bed with gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead.
Investigators say it appears the shots came from outside and went through a window. They do not believe this was a random act.
An autopsy is scheduled to take place Monday.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS.
