A teenager was found dead from a gunshot wound early Tuesday morning in west Flower Mound, and the unknown suspect is on the run, according to the Flower Mound Police Department.

Police responded to a shooting call at 5:53 a.m. at a home in the 3600 block of Green Meadow Lane and found 18-year-old Matthew Thane dead from a gunshot wound. No other family members were injured during the incident, according to police.

An investigation is underway to identify a suspect, FMPD said in a news release. The initial description provided is a subject wearing jeans and a black motorcycle helmet. Detectives do not consider this a random act and are still working to gain more information about the suspect and possible motive. Police have no reason to believe the suspect is still in the area.
