BLOOMINGTON — A man is dead after a shooting early Sunday morning at a gas station in Bloomington.

Bloomington Police Department officers were called around 2 a.m. to the Circle S gas station in the 2100 block of North Walnut Street on the report of a person shot, BPD Capt. Ryan Pedigo said in a press release.

When they arrived, they found a 39-year-old man in the passenger seat of a vehicle suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the neck, Pedigo said. He later died.

The man's identity has not been released.

Detectives are still looking for the suspect, but say they believe the suspect and the victim knew each other and don't think it was a random act, Pedigo said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
