LEESBURG, Fla. – The Leesburg Police Department said an 18-year-old man was shot and killed in front of the Leesburg Supermarket around 5:09 p.m. Monday.

Police said they found the victim dead inside a red Ford Mustang. They have since identified him as Kyser Luther. 

"The store was open, there were people in the parking lot at the time so those bullets could have found anyone," Leesburg Police Captain Joe Iozzi said.

Investigators said multiple gunshots were fired into the car from the outside.

Authorities said the preliminary investigation suggests a gray four-door car may have been involved in the shooting.

Police said two men were seen near the car at the time of the shooting.

"Anytime an 18-year-old young man is killed it’s a tragedy, and we feel for his family," Iozzi said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 352-728-9862.
