The discovery of a man's body inside a vehicle Saturday launched a homicide investigation in the city of Forest.
Scott County Coroner Joe Bradford said the 57-year-old Hispanic man was in a parked car in the driveway of his East First Street home.
He suffered a single gunshot wound to the upper torso and was pronounced dead around 11:45 Saturday morning.
The coroner believes the man may have been killed during the early morning hours before his body was discovered.
The homicide victim's name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
