Police Have Few Clues in Murder of White Settlement Teen

Victim, 18, was football player at Brewer and Western Hills high schools

Two days after a White Settlement teenager was murdered, police have no suspects and the victim's friends say they are frustrated by the lack of answers.

Xavier Olesko, 18, was shot once in the chest in a driveway on the 8100 block of Tumbleweed Trail on Monday about 8:30 p.m.

Olesko had attended Brewer and Western Hills high schools and had just finished classwork to graduate, friends said.

"He was full of excitement, just a pleasure to be around," remembered former Brewer football teammate Preston Hampton-Kelley, 17. "Full of joy. The life of the party."

Another friend, Da'Marrco Johnson, said Olesko had no enemies.

"I don't feel like it was X's time to go," Johnson, 18, said. "I hope they catch whoever did this."

Olesko was living temporarily at the house where the shooting happened, police said. Another teen who lives there said he was in the backyard when he heard a gunshot. He said when he ran out front, the shooter was gone.

Police have released little information.

"Detectives are following up on information, talking to neighbors, friends, and family, plus trying to locate any videos that would assist us in determining who committed this crime," police said in a news release.
