Police are looking for clues in an overnight shooting that left one man dead in Mount Rainier.

Officers responded to the 3800 block of 37th Street for a report of gunshots around 4:40 a.m. Wednesday. They found a man, believed to be in his mid-20s, lying on the curb of the roadway, said Capt. James Stoots of the Mount Rainier Police Department. The man, whose identity has yet to be released, died at Prince George’s County Hospital.

At this point, police have not identified a motive in the killing and investigators are not aware of anything being taken from the victim, Capt. Stoots said.

This is the first homicide of the year in Mount Rainier, a small town that borders Northeast Washington, D.C. The last homicide in the town occurred in December. One man was arrested in the slaying and is currently awaiting trial.
