Update: A victim has been identified in a homicide in the River Landing subdivision.

The victim is Corey Kitts, a plant worker. Police believe Kitts was shot in his sleep and possibly with his own hand gun. They said a gun matching the same caliber as the murder weapon was found in a nightstand by the bed.

Authorities said they also found ammunition from the gun that matches gun shells found at the crime scene. They said a magazine for the gun is missing.

Police said Kitts’ wife told them she arrived home for lunch and discovered her husband shot. There are no signs of forced entry, and authorities haven’t ruled out any possible scenarios.

We will stay live at the scene here on News 2 at 5 and 6 and bring you the latest on this developing story.
