MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police officers are investigating a death in Whitehaven.

Officers found a man's body near the intersection of Neely Road and Levi Road. He was found shot to death in a ditch and left for dead. 

Neighbors heard the gunshots Tuesday night.

"I was laying down in my bed and I heard about 14 gunshots," one neighbor said.

Neighbors said a man was walking down the street Wednesday morning, saw a man's body, and called police. They said a driver would never have seen the body based on where it was located, but someone walking near the area discovered it. 

Investigators combed the area, searching for clues and looking for anything to bring answers to what happened and who was responsible.

Police do not have any suspect information at this time.
