A man is dead after he was shot on Meadow Creek Road near Hickory Hill Road and Raines Road.

Police said the man was found unresponsive with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Investigators said two people who were house hunting found the man. They went to the back of the home and noticed the man dead inside the garage.

"That's not a way for anybody to die, to be left outside,” neighbor Cedric Miller said. "Make sure you stay safe out here."

The victim’s identity will not be released at this time.

As of Sunday morning, the home was still littered with blood stains, a window was shattered by a brick, and everything was easily accessed by an open gate.

"Still in shock,” Miller said. “Never thought anything like this would happen in this neighborhood.  But, you know, in these times and these days, anything can happen."

No arrests have been made. This is an ongoing investigation.

This is the 150th homicide in Memphis in 2016.
