WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Multiple roads were closed Wednesday in West Palm Beach after a man who was shot crashed his vehicle and later died, according to police.

Sgt. David Lefont said the vehicle wrecked around 10:37 a.m. near the intersection of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard and North Australian Avenue.

The victim was found after the rollover crash and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead at 11:18 a.m.

According to Lefont, investigators were at the scene gathering evidence for a couple of hours.

Lefont said Wednesday evening that police believe the victim, identified as 25-year-old Travis Leslie, was targeted and this was not a random act of violence.

All roads that were closed earlier have reopened.

Anyone with information in the homicide should call the West Palm Beach Police Department 561-822-1900 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers 800-458-TIPS.
