A man was found dead in the middle of Russell Drive around 12:40 Sunday morning.

Coroner Clayton Cobler says a black male suffered a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was found face down in a pool of blood in the middle of the street next to a running vehicle.

The car left running is a Chrysler 300 that had the windshield wipers left on and was parked in the southbound lane of Russell Drive near the Highway 39 overpass. Patrol cars were seen going to a nearby nightclub as the scene was being blocked off with crime scene tape.
