Last summer, 60-year-old Timothy Drabick was shot in Temple. He spent several weeks in the hospital before passing away, and police are now turning the public for help bringing his killer to justice.

Alejandra Arreguin with the Temple Police Department reports that the shooting occurred in the early morning hours of June 16, 2020 in the 2300 block of S. 55th Street.

Drabick died as a result of injuries on July 28, 2020.

Police haven't released any further information, but they did share a photo of Drabick in hopes that someone will come forward with information about that night or Drabick's attacker.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick of hearing about all these shootings in Temple. More recently, gunfire erupted at a little bar on the southeast side of town called "Club Paradise". Yeah, right. Anyway, police released surveillance footage, and it's heartbreaking to see a man carrying a baby and a child standing near him who could have been hit.

Earlier this week, two suspects were taken into custody, but police are still investigating the shooting and could use your help if you have any information or saw something.

Temple is a nice place to live, but this trend of shootings and violence is disturbing.
