FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. -  The Major Case Squad has been activated after a teenager was murdered at his metro-east home.

Police responded to a residence in Fairview Heights around 8:40 p.m. Wednesday night. Officers said Kameron Dorsey,18, died from a gunshot wound in garage of his home.  Family members who were home at the time heard the gunfire, found their relative, and called police.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say at this point they're not sure if the shooting was a drive-by or if it unfolded in some other fashion. We are told the garage door was open at the time of the murder.

Investigators don't have a motive at this time they are unclear if the shooting was random but say at this point they don't have information that would lead them to believe that anyone else is in danger.

We spoke with investigators earlier about the first murder of the year in Fairview heights.
