The male has been identified as Jaylon Alexander Knight, 19, of Fairfield, OH. 

Officers responded to the area just after 6 a.m.

They said they found the victim slumped over and dead inside the car, which apparently ran up on a sidewalk after the shooting and came to a stop against a house.

The car has two bullet holes on the driver's side window and at least one in the door.

The car doors were locked. Police had to break a car window to get to the victim.

A neighbor said four gunshots woke her up from a sound sleep.
