An investigation is ongoing in Whitley County after a body was discovered in the middle of a road early Friday.

Someone going home from work came across the body along Cane Gap Road, 7 miles east of Williamsburg near the Gatliff community.

Authorities identified the body Friday morning as 35-year-old Larry D. Jones of Williamsburg. Police say Jones was shot three times in head, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheriff's deputies had already been busy with another non-fatal shooting not far from there in the Frakes area.
