TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson says deputies are investigating the death of a cab driver who was shot in the head and robbed.

Coroner Carolyn Green identifies him as 55-year-old Charles Williams of Tupelo.

Johnson tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1qm1sOf ) that two motorcyclists called 911 after finding Williams’ body about 10 p.m. Friday on a road just south of the Tupelo city limits.

He says investigators were able to find the person who called for a ride about 9:30 p.m. Friday, and an interview with that person led to an investigation of someone else. He wouldn’t give details.

Green tells WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/1XsZGIr ) that the body will be sent Monday for autopsy.
