Man Found Dead Shot Multiple Times

  Smith County investigators have confirmed that a man found dead in a vehicle yesterday sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Twenty-three-year-old Shaune Pickens has a list of criminal offenses in Smith County, including drug possession, theft, and evading arrest. Pickens' death is being treated as a murder. Authorities say Pickens was shot through the left windows of a Ford Expedition.

  A homeowner who lives just east of Tyler called police yesterday afternoon, after he saw the SUV parked in his driveway. Investigators say they have found no connection between the homeowner and either Pickens or the vehicle owner. They say the vehicle's owner recently moved to Smith County and still had Oklahoma license plates.
