Mother wants justice for her son's death

LAWTON, Okla._Lawton police are on the hunt for a killer after a man was shot to death in his own driveway on the city's west side.

It all happened just before 2:30 a.m. Friday, police responded to a call of gunshots on northwest Welco Avenue, just south of Rogers Lane near 82nd Street. There they found the victim Timothy Hill, 37, man lying dead in his driveway with multiple gunshot wounds.

According to family members, Hill had just come home from a local nightclub. Police said he pulled into his driveway and that's when he was gunned down, right in front of his own home. An act of violence has now left a mother devastated and demanding answers.

"I always thought that I would go first. That I would go before my son," said Shirley Goynes, a now grieving mother.

Goynes describes the past 24 hours as a complete nightmare.

"I couldn't believe it when they called me this morning and told me what happened to him. I'm still in shock," said Goynes.

It's quiet now in this family-oriented neighborhood just off Rogers Lane, but along Welco Avenue, home to Albert Johnson Park, neighbors are stunned. Several neighbors said this is a first for the neighborhood and first for their families. But nothing compares to the void that lies with Shirley Goynes and the loved ones of a beloved son and a father.

"Tim just loved everybody. I just don't understand it. How can you take somebody's life? I don't care what anybody does to you. You don't have the right to take anybody's life. I know stuff like this happens everyday, but this murder stuff needs to stop. It needs to stop," cried Goynes.

Tim leaves behind four children, ages 13, 9, 6, and 5. At this hour, police are hoping several shell casings collected overnight at the scene will shed some light on whoever's responsible for Hill's death. In the meantime, Shirley says her faith will not only help her through her grief, but help her forgive the ones who murdered her son.

Hill's body has been sent to the State Medical Examiner for a complete autopsy. Police have not released any suspect information at this time.
