The Lawton Police Department is investigating after a man was found shot early Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a reported shooting at an apartment complex in the 5200 block of Rogers Lane. Witnesses told police a vehicle left the scene and the shooting victim may have been inside that vehicle.
