Police identify man found dead in Danville
UPDATED 2:50 p.m. Monday
DANVILLE - Danville police continue to investigate a shooting Sunday night that claimed the life of a 25-year-old.
The Vermilion County coroner’s office said Monday afternoon that Latrell A. Smith was found dead Sunday.
Doug Miller, deputy director of Danville police, said a resident of an apartment in the 900 block of Campbell Lane at the Fair Oaks public housing complex got home shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday night and found Mr. Smith in the apartment with a gunshot wound. He was rushed to Provena United Samaritans Medical Center’s emergency room where he was pronounced dead.
Miller said it’s not yet clear whether Mr. Smith lived at the apartment where he was found. The individual who found him does live at that apartment, he said, but is not a relative.
He said detectives are talking to relatives and anyone else who knew Mr. Smith along with anyone at the apartment complex who may have seen something in hopes of determining what happened.
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
