When officers arrived, they found a man in his mid-20s who had been shot in his lower body. He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to the release.

Officers also found a bicycle near where the man was found and believe it belongs to him. According to the release, a crime scene was processed but detectives “have very little information to go on at this time.”
