VIDEO: Search continues for gunman accused of killing Concord teen

CONCORD (KRON) — Police are still searching for the gunman who shot and killed a student near Olympic High School in Concord Monday afternoon.

Around 1:32 p.m. 17-year-old Lawrence Janson was shot at the corner of Salvio and Beach streets while walking home from school.

Police say someone jumped out of a four-door, black sedan and opened fire.

Janson staggered his way back to campus after being hit multiple times.

Teachers and several others rushed to help him.

He was pronounced dead about three hours later.

Police confirmed that although Jason was walking with a group of people, he was the shooter’s intended target.

The suspect is described as a possibly Hispanic man, age 20-to-25, carrying a black gun.

Police are hoping to find surveillance video to get a better description.

Tuesday morning, counseling will be available for grieving students at Olympic.

A candlelight, roadside vigil was set up in Janson’s honor.
