A few hundred people live in the area northeast of Farmersville near Road 156 and Walnut Avenue.
Investigators say a 20-year-old man was shot in the street around 10:15 Thursday night. The victim died at the scene.
Detectives are now trying to get witnesses who may have seen what happened to come forward. Several hundred farm workers live in that area. Investigators hope to have a description of the getaway car later Friday morning.
Investigators are not sure if it was a drive-by shooting, but say a car at the scene was left with several bullet holes.
