"We know that there was a shot heard in the neighborhood about 2:30 in the morning , however his body was not found until 7:o0 in the morning. So when a neighbor was going to work, that is when they noticed he was lying outside of his home," said Benton.

Investigators say his cellphone and his black 2006 Range Rover were stolen.
