HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - State police say a Connecticut man whose body was found near the scene of an explosion over the weekend died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Police on Monday identified the victim as 39-year-old Edward Brooks of West Haven.

His body was found Saturday at West Rock State Park in Hamden near a wooded area where an explosion had been heard earlier in the day.

Authorities said they were looking for evidence at Brooks’ home in West Haven and have also identified a Nissan Altima with Florida license plates that is considered a vehicle of interest in the case.

Police are calling it an active investigation but say the incident is considered isolated and there is no threat to the community.
