Scott police are investigating an apparent homicide after a body was found lying in the middle of a road.
The body was discovered on West Willow Street just west of Ambassador Caffery at 5:00 this morning.
Chief Chad Leger says a Lafayette police officer was driving down West Willow when he saw the body. The officer discovered that the person had been shot and was dead. Leger would not specify where the victim was shot or how many wounds he suffered.
The identity of the deceased will be released once next of kin is notified.
