READING, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in an alley in Reading.

Police said neighbors heard gunshots between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Saturday, but police weren’t called until later in the morning.

Authorities said a couple walking their dog reported spotting the victim. Investigators got to the scene at about 9 a.m. Saturday.

Capt. Mark Spotts said the victim was a male in his 20s, and the body was surrounded by bullet casings.

Police are asking for help from the public in identifying the victim.
