LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Longview police say a body of a white male found in the parking lot of Denny's on S. Eastman Road in Longview may be connected to another crime scene in Longview.

Police say the body, shot dead, was found around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday in the passenger seat of an abandoned car in the Denny's parking lot.

Earlier Sunday evening, authorities responded to a shooting on Beaumont Street where three people were transported to the hospital with gunshot wounds. Their condition is unknown.

Police believe the two incidents may be connected, although they are unsure how the victim got to the Denny's parking lot. 

"At this point it's very early in the investigation and we're still not sure exactly what happened here," said Longview police officer Kristie Brian.  

There are no suspects in either case at this time. No identities are being released at this time.  An autopsy will be ordered on the body.
