McKinney, Texas – Just after 7:00 p.m. on March 8, police dispatchers began receiving 911 calls about a shooting outside a home in the 800 block of Maples Avenue. Upon arrival, officers determined that an altercation led to shots being fired into a crowd of about 30 people who were gathered out front. James Penegar (07-13-1963) was stuck and died a short time later at Medical City McKinney. 

Our detectives gathered statements at the scene and are now asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect, believed to have driven off in a silver passenger car with two others inside. 

We are asking that anyone with information contact Det. Rimpel at 972-547-2811 or trimpel@mckinneytexas.org.
