RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Police say a man has been found shot to death in a wrecked car in Raleigh.

Investigators said officers were checking a report of gunshots around 3:15 a.m. Sunday just east of downtown when a call came in about a wreck less than two miles away.

Authorities found a dead man in the wrecked car, and several people in the car were seen running away after the crash.

Police think the two incidents are related, but continue to investigate. They also are trying to identify the people who ran from the car.

The name of the victim of the shooting has not been released.
