MIDDLETOWN — A 41-year-old Front Royal man has been identified as the victim of a homicide on Tuesday.
Keith Hamilton Tolson, whose last known address was in the 300 block of Sugar Maple Road, was found shot in the parking lot of the McDonald's at 85 Reliance Road about 3:20 a.m. on Tuesday. Police said video surveillance showed Tolson leave the Liberty gas station across the road from the McDonald's and run from a pickup truck that was chasing him. Tolson had been staying at the Econo Lodge Hotel & Suites behind the McDonald's.
