DETROIT – An investigation is underway after a man was fatally shot, bound with cords and set on fire on an empty Detroit street early Wednesday.

The body was found on a street that has no houses, but neighbors on other blocks heard multiple gunshots, police said.

Police cameras showed someone in a van dumping the body and lighting it on fire on Westbrook Street, near Outer Drive.

Investigators are working to figure out a license plate number for the van that the body was dumped from.
