A 19-year-old has died from injuries he suffered in an Arlington parking lot while he may have been involved in what police called “high-risk activity.”
The teen may have been hit by a vehicle during a possible drug transaction, Arlington police said.
The teen suffered the injuries Tuesday night, but died Wednesday morning in a local hospital.
The victim has been identified as Jose Alonso Contreras, 19, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s website on Thursday. He was pronounced dead at 7:56 a.m. Wednesday.
Arlington police responded to a call of an unconscious person in a parking lot about 11 p.m. Tuesday in the 2000 block of Spruce Point Drive in Arlington.
Arlington police determined that Contreras may have been struck by a vehicle in the parking lot.
Detectives are canvassing the area for witnesses and surveillance video.
