BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Police say a man was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds in a Birmingham community.

Birmingham Police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards said in a news release that the 28-year-old black man was found dead and lying on the grass outside an abandoned house late Saturday afternoon.

Sgt. Bryan Shelton tells Al.com the victim was disabled, but he was unable to release the nature of the man’s disability.

The name of the victim wasn’t released.

Witnesses told police the victim was the woman’s pimp, and they were both known to live in abandoned houses in the neighborhood.

Detectives learned that the victim was seen earlier Saturday in the company of a white woman and two black men.

The area where the man was found is mainly made up of abandoned houses.
