Death investigation underway after man shot in Coachella

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."

Officials added that due to the unknown circumstances surrounding the death, investigators from the Thermal Station and the Central Homicide Unit responded and assumed the investigation. 

Authorities identified the man as Jorge Camargo,47, of Thousand Palms.

KESQ News Channel 3 is still trying to find out more about the investigation and will bring you new information as we get it.  

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department asks anyone with information regarding the incident to contact Central Homicide Investigator Brown at (951) 955-2777.
