The body of a 26-year-old man who police say was shot to death was discovered near a Dumpster in Mink Shoals Saturday morning.

Cpl. B.D. Humpreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office said a call came in about 8:30 a.m. for a report of a person on the ground near John Wesley Drive. Deputies and medical personnel responded, but found Shane Patrick Henry, of Charleston, dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Humpreys said detectives secured the crime scene and began their investigation this morning.

"Some neighbors reported hearing noises similar to gunshots or firecrackers in the early morning hours," Humpreys said in a news release. "However, no calls were placed to Metro 911."
