Kristian Marche, a standout track and football athlete who graduated earlier this year from Imhotep Institute Charter High School in East Germantown, was to begin his freshman year this week at Pennsylvania State University, where he was given a track-and-field scholarship, authorities said Wednesday.

Police believe the 18-year-old was targeted when he was shot in the head while in the rear driveway of his West Oak Lane home about 9:35 p.m. Monday.

“Kristian clearly was an exceptionally talented young man with a very promising future that was violently cut short,” Homicide Lt. Norman Davenport told reporters at a news conference Wednesday.

“We’re not simply asking people to come forward with any information, we’re asking parents to be proactive,” Davenport said. “Parents whose students attended Imhotep Charter High School, parents whose children ran track with Kristian, parents whose children live in the neighborhood, to sit down with your children and ask your children if they have any information on this homicide. This is a job that needs to be solved.”

Police “have no idea what the motive is” behind the shooting and have not identified a suspect.
