LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Police in Little Rock say a man discovered on the front porch of a residence with gunshot wounds has died.

Little Rock Police Officer Eric Barnes says the shooting was reported about 6:30 p.m. Friday. Investigators say the man had been shot several times and was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

Barnes says at least one witness told investigators that the man was shot in a drive-by shooting. A 911 caller reported hearing several shots, but Barnes says police are still investigating.

The victim was not immediately identified pending notification of his family. No information about suspects or a motive was immediately released.
