Man found shot to death



Police are investigating the death of a man was found shot multiple times in the backyard of a Broad Street duplex Tuesday night.

Investigator Scott Peebles said the man, whose name has not been released, was shot in the backyard of the residence in the 1600 block of Broad Street at about 6:20 p.m. Police took two men into custody for questioning but no charges had been filed yet, he said.

Officers at the nearby public works maintenance complex ran to the scene after hearing shots fired at the address and took the two men into custody, said Investigator Peebles.

Dennis Niederhofer, owner of a nearby automotive body shop, said he heard five shots.

"There were two initially, then one and two more," he said. "There was definite hesitation between the shots."
