WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — The teen killed in what is Worcester’s first homicide of 2018 has been identified.

The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports the teen has been identified as 16-year-old Sidney Krow Jr.

Worcester police say authorities found Krow Jr. with a gunshot wound on Holland Road early Sunday.

School Superintendent Maureen Binienda said Krow Jr. was a sophomore at the Gerald Creamer Center.

Detectives continue to investigate the shooting. They have yet to arrest a suspect.

Last year, there were 25 people shot in Worcester. None of them died. The newspaper reports that police said 2017 was the first year in more than 25 years Worcester didn’t see a homicide by firearm.
