Police are investigating a murder in East Knoxville.
Knoxville police say at about 5:30 Wednesday evening, they responded to a call about a dead man inside an apartment on East Magnolia Avenue.
When officers arrived, they found the victim inside the apartment with gunshot wounds.
Police say no witnesses reported hearing any shots fired.
"It is just a little unusual that nobody called in and said they heard shots fired because we did not actually get a report of shots fired," said Lt. Greg Corker. "Our first call to this location regarding this incident was a report of a dead man in the apartment, so we had no report of shots fired."
Police say they don't know the relation between the victim and the person who found him dead.
Officers are not releasing the victim's name right now.
No arrest has been made.
