Tulsa police find the body of a 20-year-old shooting victim early Monday morning. Officers say they made the discovery while responding to a call of a shooting at the Towne Square Apartments.

Police say they don't have much information. They got the call about a shooting at the apartment complex, just before midnight. 

Responding officers stopped a vehicle leaving the area of the Towne Square Apartments and the driver notified them that a man was shot near 1620 East Young Place.

Investigators identified the victim as 20-year-old Shawn Banks.

Police said Banks lived at the apartments, and that the person who notified them about Banks' body didn't see the actual shooting, so police are working with limited information.

Investigators said the shooting occurred about 20 minutes before they discovered Banks' body in the breezeway.

Officers said there was no firearm found on Banks' body. They're looking for a possible motive behind the shooting.
