Williamson County

TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) — Police are investigating after a 33-year-old man was found dead inside of a Taylor home Tuesday afternoon, Taylor police said.

Police said a family member found Jonathan Hitch, 33, dead with a gunshot wound to the head. Police are considering the death a homicide.

Police responded to 2100 Whistling Way around 4:14 p.m. Tuesday.

“They our neighbor… it’s very weird,” said next-door Neighbor Dora, who asked we not use her last name. “On Thanksgiving Day, we did hear a big bang.”

Officers haven’t said when exactly Jonathan may have been killed.

The Williamson County Crime Scene Unit, the Texas Rangers and the Precinct Two Justice of the Peace are helping Taylor detectives, police said.

Police told KXAN this incident is not believed to be connected to a suspected murder-suicide incident that killed four people Tuesday in Taylor.
