Police: Man found shot dead inside running car in Feltonville

A person in Feltonville stumbled upon a man dead of a gunshot wound inside a running car Monday night, cops said, and investigators were trying to figure out the circumstances surrounding the murder.

Police said they received a call for a man slumped down in the driver's seat of a red 2001 Mercury Sable parked in a driveway behind an apartment complex on Lawrence Street near Annsbury at 8:29 p.m. When they arrived at the scene, they found the 37-year-old victim dead in the driver's seat of what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the neck.

Investigators found one .40-caliber shell casing behind the car, and one bullet hole in the rear driver's side window. They were unsure what motivated the shooting or how long the man had been there. He was pronounced dead at the scene by medics at 8:36 p.m.

There were no private surveillance cameras in the area, police said, and they were unsure what motivated the shooting.

Cops were still investigating the shooting late Monday night.
