Death investigation

Southaven Police are investigating the death of a teenager found near an intersection early Wednesday morning. 

Police were called to the intersection of Surrey Lane and Tuscany Way about 5:45 a.m. Wednesday on the report of a body lying on the ground next to a vehicle.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a 14-year-old male was the victim of a gunshot wound and was dead.

Wednesday afternoon, investigators were still in the process of determining what had happened and police were calling it an ongoing open investigation.
