Man found shot to death in Douglas County gas station parking lot

Deputies in Douglas County are investigating a body found in a parking lot of a gas station on Tuesday.

Officials told FOX 5 that the man was found dead from a gunshot wound next to a coffee truck in the parking lot of Pete's gas station on the 1800 block of Lee Road.

The identity of the body has not been released, though police say a victim is a white man in his 40s.

The shooting caused a soft lockdown at two Douglas County schools on Tuesday morning. Around 12:30 p.m. the lockdown was lifted and operations resumed as normal.
