"A few weeks ago, I was walking the dog and heard a bunch of gunshots way down Buntyn across Central," said neighbor Preston Battle. "It was like bam bam bam bam. And then returning gunfire and I got back in the house as soon as I could."

Police said a train conductor spotted the body while traveling his route.

The victim has not been identified and the cause of death is unknown.

The matter is under investigation.
