GRENADA, Miss. (WTVA) -- Grenada police are investigating the Friday morning shooting death of a man.

Capt. George Douglas tells police discovered Izzic Terrell Townes, 43, had been shot after responding to a call at 640 Govan Street, Apartment A around 3 a.m.

Townes was suffering from a gunshot wound and was taken by ambulance to UMMC Grenada, where he was later pronounced dead.

Douglas says several people were in the apartment and said there was a dice game going on.

Witnesses says Townes went into the living room after someone knocked on the door of the apartment, and the people inside say they heard what sounded like a struggle before hearing gunfire.

Douglas says they then ran in to try and help Townes.

So far, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call (662) 226-1211 or (662) 227-TIPS.
