Residents at the apartment complex told police they heard a gunshot and went outside where they found the male laying on the ground in the courtyard next to an apartment building.

There were several shell casings found in the parking lot, but authorities can't say if it's from the shooting or a different incident.


Officials say they are still investigating and talking to witnesses to see what else they might have heated and if there is any surveillance video.
