TUPELO, Miss. (AP) -

Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson says deputies are investigating the death of a cab driver who was shot in the head and robbed.

Coroner Carolyn Green identified the man as 55-year-old Charles Williams of Tupelo.

Johnson said two motorcyclists called 911 after finding Williams' body about 10 p.m. Friday on a road just south of the Tupelo city limits.

He says investigators were able to find the person who called for a ride about 9:30 p.m. Friday, and an interview with that person led to an investigation of someone else, who is being sought by police.

Green said the the body will be sent Monday for autopsy.
