Man found dead in Arkansas street

PINE BLUFF, AR (AP) - Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man who was found on top of a storm drain opening in Pine Bluff.

Officers responded about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday after a 911 caller reported hearing gunshots and finding a body lying in a road.

The victim, later identified as 33-year-old Ellis Carroll Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene by a Jefferson County coroner.

Officers found a holstered gun in Carroll's waistline, but said the weapon didn't appear to have been fired. No other weapons were found.

Investigators are looking for a black male who stands about 5-feet 7-inches tall, weighs about 175 pounds and has several tattoos.
