TYLER, Texas (AP) - Police say a man has been fatally shot while in the parking lot of an East Texas apartment complex.

Tyler police on Tuesday asked for the public's help in locating whoever shot 21-year-old Joshua McGil in the back.

Officers Monday night responded to a call about gunfire in the parking lot. Police say McGil was found at the scene and was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities believe the attacker used a shotgun.

Further details weren't immediately available.
