LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Police are investigating the death of a man who died at a local hospital after he was found lying on a city street early this morning. They are calling the death suspicious.

Details are incomplete, but investigators say the man, identified only as black and in his 40s, was discovered at the intersection of E. 1st and Pine streets around 4:45 a.m. They say he had some wounds, but they aren't disclosing what they were at this time.

An autopsy will be conducted in Jackson.

"To my knowledge, he was still alive at the time (he was found)," said Capt. Tommy Cox of the Laurel Police Dept. "He was transported to South Central and at some point during that treatment process, he was pronounced dead," he said.  

Cox said investigators are hoping someone will step forward with information that will help them in this case. They can call Laurel Police or Crimestoppers at (601) 428-STOP.

"We're kind of starting from ground zero on this one," he said. "We're looking for any information that anybody has, what they heard somebody say, just anything," he said.
