Authorities are now identifying a man found shot to death on the South Coast.

The body of Giovanni Vegas was found by a passerby at around six a.m. Friday on the 200 block of Vineyard Avenue in Oxnard. While an autopsy is still pending on the 25 year old Oxnard man, police say it appears he died from a gunshot wound. Police had been called to the area by a report of shots fired at around midnight, but they were unable to find any evidence of a shooting at the time.

There are no suspects, and no indication of a motive for the killing at this time.
