Police confirmed the teen killed in a shooting Saturday night on South Bend's west side was 16-year-old Jhaelon Johnson.
An autopsy was completed Monday afternoon and showed the boy died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Police responded to a call on the 3100 block of West Washington Avenue near Lasalle Park, and found Johnson laying dead on the sidewalk early Sunday morning.
Johnson was one of six victims wounded in several shootings reported late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Police don't have any suspects at this time, but are investigating a probable link between Johnson's death and a shooting only a few hours earlier at Bentley Lane in the Corby Apartment Home parking lot.
Police do have custody of a silver, four-door car that police believe matches the description of where victim's say shots were fired during a drive-by shooting.
Community members say the surge in area violence needs to stop, and want to see more programs and seminars implemented in South Bend to give teens a place to go. Many agreed to help curb violence, community leaders should target area youth.
Titus Jones, a South Bend youth counselor says discussing violence is a major issue. "We have a big problem in South Bend. We have to find a way to curb it. Like i said before it takes a village to raise a child, we all have to be here, the whole city has to be here. This is way too small, we need to make this a bigger issue."
Police are continuing to investigate a link between the weekend shootings.
