Police are investigating after Keith Williams was found shot to death in a vehicle on Wednesday night. 

Williams, 22, was found shot around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night in the 700 block of Ridgeway Avenue.

Officers initially received reports of a person dead in the vehicle. Responding authorities declared Williams to be dead on the scene.

Homicide units are working to identify the suspect. No suspects have been named. However, police are hopeful.

"We do have some people who are contacting us, whether that gives us enough to say a suspect or anything to go on any time soon," says Captain Michael Neville. "We are getting some information already."

Neville admits that it has been a rough week for District 4. 

"It's been a tough week with the incident with the three-year-old girl, this one and some other incidences including the lady that was attacked by the dogs," explains Neville.

However, Neville adds that they are persistent and will continue to investigate each incident.

FOX19 will continue to update the story as details become available.
