In the middle of a Brandon road, a man was found dead inside a van, and deputies are searching for a suspect, they said.

Around 10:30 p.m., Hillsborough County deputies were driving on Woodberry Road when they spotted the van parked along the dark road. The van was still running and had its lights still on, according to the sheriff’s office.

The deputies said they found the victim inside with gunshot wounds. The male victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he passed away. His identity has not been released.

Investigators said it’s possible the suspect and victim knew one another, but didn’t provide additional details. Throughout the night, deputies were interviewing neighbors but are asking for any witnesses to come forward. Detectives do not believe there is any threat to the public.
