A death investigation was underway in Coachella Thursday morning after a man was found with an apparent gunshot wound.
Investigators cordoned off the street at Vista del Norte just south of Tyler Street.
Deputies said they were notified of the incident just after 2:00 a.m.m when a driver passed by the location and saw a person down in the street. Deputies arrived and found a man dead with what they described in a news release as "injuries."
