ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found sprawled on a city sidewalk.

Officials say police found the body while responding to a call late Friday about a person being shot. Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee says officers discovered a man who appeared to have died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The Fulton County medical examiner identified the victim as 32-year-old Dontacus Rosser of Atlanta.

Police gave no motive for the shooting and no arrests had been announced by noon Saturday. Chafee says any witnesses with information should contact Atlanta police.
