Plano Neighbors On Edge Over Unsolved Murder

A Plano neighborhood is on edge after a man was gunned down in his own garage

Chris Collinvitti was killed Tuesday, November 7, at his home on Case Drive.

Little is known about what happened.

Police say they found Collinvitti shot to death in his garage around 9 p.m.

The suspect, police say, may have driven a dark sedan.

Neighbor Bentley Ferrell says Collinvitti kept to himself.

He was 58 years old, married and worked for Raytheon in McKinney.

Police say there's nothing obvious about the way he lived that points to why he died.

Like neighbors, police say, they're concerned too.

“Was it just a one-time thing or should we be concerned in Plano about something else happening somewhere else?” Ferrell asked.

Ferrell says the mystery means being more aware of his surroundings.

For the Parks family next door, playtime outside now ends a little earlier.

“Since we don't have a motive, since we don't know the situation, it leaves it open to wondering is it going to happen again?” Greg Parks wondered.

Police say they have not determined if anything was stolen from the home after the murder.

They've stepped up patrols in the neighborhood and Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $5,000 reward.
