Pueblo police are investigating what they believe is the city's third homicide of the year.

It happened just before 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning near Highway 227.

Police say they were called out to a report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they found a man, with one gunshot wound, lying dead near the curb.

Police have not released the victim's name and will not release it until they can notify next of kin. They are still investigating and, at this time, have no suspects.
