Man found shot to death in middle of Riverside street

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- A homicide investigation was underway in Riverside Thursday after a man's body was found on a street.

Riverside police received a call shortly after 1 a.m. regarding reports of a man's body near the corner of Kansas and Vermont avenues.

The victim, found lying in the middle of the street by a neighbor, was identified as a 27-year-old man. Authorities said it appeared he died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Authorities believe the victim could have been killed in a different location and was dumped in the street because no one in the neighborhood heard any gunshots.

Anyone with information is asked to call Riverside Police Department Detective Jim Simons at (951) 353-7138 or Detective Adrian Tillett (951) 353-7105.
