ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police say although a caller reported hearing 25 gunshots, they are thought to have been fireworks and are not related to the shooting death of a man at an Asheville apartment complex.

Local media outlets report that the body of 44-year-old Virgilio Kaius Johnny was found around 7 a.m. Wednesday.

A 911 call about 10 p.m. Tuesday came from a caller who said they heard about 25 gunshots. But police say caller was likely hearing fireworks. The medical examiner said the victim was probably alive at 2 a.m. Wednesday.

No arrests have been made.

An autopsy will determine how many times Johnny was shot.
