SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland State Police have identified a man who was found shot to death Wednesday morning in Salisbury. 

Investigators said the body of Keonte Gaskins, 21, of no fixed address, was located at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday, in the outdoor stairwell of the Village of Mitchell Pond Apartment Complex on Parsons Road in Salisbury.  Residents from the apartment complex called 9-1-1 after making the discovery.  Emergency medical providers pronounced Gaskins deceased at the scene, according to police. 

Investigators from the MSP Homicide Unit were called to assist the Salisbury Police Department in the investigation. Police said that upon their arrival, Gaskins was found lying in the stairwell, fully clothed, with apparent gunshot wounds.  He has been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.

State police said they continue to interview residents of the apartment complex and others who may be associated with Gaskins.  One witness told investigators that shots were heard shortly after midnight Wednesday.

Anyone with information about Gaskins' death is urged to contact the MSP Salisbury Barrack at (410) 749-3101, or Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at (410) 548-1776.
