Lauderhill Shooting Declared Homicide by Police
The death of Ian Owen Atkinson -- the 19-year-old man found dead on the doorstep of his Lauderhill home Thursday morning -- has been declared a homicide, police say.
Atkinson's uncle had gone to the house in the 7000 block of Sienna Ridge Lane around 7 a.m. Thursday to find the teenager dead.
Lauderhill police said Atkinson died of a gunshot wound, although they weren't initially sure whether he shot himself or was shot by someone else.
Now they're pretty sure someone shot him.
