From Royse City PD:
It is not the practice of the Royse City Police Department to release tragic information of someone’s demise, however this particular incident was misrepresented by a local media site. This information is being shared to clarify the truth and deter further inaccuracies.
At approximately 7:00 am on February 16, Royse City Police Officers responded to the area of City Lake Park. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male deceased from what appeared to be a self inflicted gunshot wound. Detective’s responded to the scene and worked this incident as they do all shootings. The deceased, Edwin Lopez was transported to the medical examiner’s office for further examination.
It is with the deepest sympathy to family and friends that such a young life was lost. Please respect the family at this time of need and remembers words do hurt.
