A witness that asked to remain anonymous told VVNG she stopped to pump gas at about 3:45 am, and saw a man outside of the business that was acting strange. Another witness reported seeing first-responders performing CPR on a black male adult on the outside of the business near the front entrance.

Deputies have blocked off the entire parking lot area of the Circle K with crime scene tape and the area remains an active investigation as of 10:00 am.
