A 55-year-old man was found shot to death Monday afternoon on the side of a road in Gary, Indiana.
At 12:22 p.m., officers responded to a call of a man down in the 2500 block of Calhoun Street, according to Gary police and the Lake County coroner’s office. When officers arrived, they found Jimmy Valentine unresponsive in a ditch off the roadway.
Valentine, of Gary, was pronounced dead at the scene just over an hour later, authorities said.
An autopsy Monday found Valentine died from a gunshot wound, and his death was ruled a homicide, the coroner’s office said.
