A police investigation has revealed that a man found dead alongside the shoulder of a road in Westchester was shot on Monday morning.

At approximately 8:20 a.m., members of the Yonkers Police Department responded to the vicinity of eastbound Tuckahoe Road by the New York State Thruway overpass on a report of a body discovered at that location.

A passerby had discovered the body and immediately called the police. Upon arrival, responding patrol units observed a male, who appeared to be in his mid-30s, lying on the ground with trauma to his body. The male was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers established a crime scene, and began an intense investigation. Detectives from the Major Case Squad and Crime Scene Unit are actively investigating this incident, interviewing witnesses, canvassing for surveillance video, and processing forensic evidence.

During the course of this investigation, it has been determined that the man was shot numerous times. His identity will not be released at this time pending both notification to his family and the continuance of the investigation.

The Medical Examiner took possession of the body. The investigation is continuing.
