MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police say the death of a 29-year-old Milwaukee man is being investigated as a homicide after he crashed his car and was found with a gunshot wound.

Milwaukee police spokesman Lt. Mark Stanmeyer says the crash happened just before 3 a.m. Sunday on the city’s south side.

Police and fire crews were called after the car crashed into a building. Fire crews found the driver with a gunshot wound. The man was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1cMtJat ) reports no one has been arrested.

The shooting comes after a rash of killings last week brought Milwaukee’s number of homicides to at least 42 for the year - about three times as high as it was at the same point last year.
