Police say they received a call that a person was lying in the backyard of home. When they arrived they found 21 year old Sidney Deon Thomas - who lives on the same street - dead with an apparent gun shot wound.
Authorities are trying to determine if the death is related to an altercation at a party that took place on Pinehall road involving several individuals. They know at least two people began firing weapons.
Officers who were responding to shots fired in the area encountered several vehicles leaving the immediate area around that time.
