ORLANDO, Fla. - An anonymous phone call led officers to a 40-year-old man’s body Tuesday evening in a field near the Parramore neighborhood, the Orlando Police Department said.
Police were called at about 6:15 p.m. to Columbia Street near South Parramore Avenue and West Gore Street, where they discovered Aschielle Webster lying in a field, Orlando police Lt. Jonathan Bigelow said.
Webster had been shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene, Bigelow said.
"It is hard to determine when ... (Webster) was killed," Bigelow said. "He died at this location, so that is something that we are trying to piece together."
Residents reported hearing gunfire late Monday or early Tuesday, investigators said.
The gunman remains at large and Webster's death remains under investigation.
No other details were given.
Anyone with information is asked to call Orlando police or Crimeline.
