UPDATE: Tulsa Police say an anonymous caller helped them locate Terrance Jones' maroon-colored Ford Explorer in a business parking lot in the 3500 block of East Ute Street.

TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police say a family leaving their house Sunday morning discovered the body of a shooting victim on their front lawn.

Sergeant Jeff Cealka of the Tulsa Police Department told the News On 6 they received a "man down" call at about 9:20 a.m. from a residence near East Ute Street and North Jamestown Avenue.

"The family came out to leave and saw the man lying in their yard and called us," Cealka said.

Neighbors say they heard shots fired between 9:45 and 10 p.m. Saturday night, but no one called the police, he said.

The victim has been identified as Terrance Jamond Jones, 36 of Tulsa.

"There is no motive known at this time and very few leads to follow," said Sergeant Dave Walker of the TPD Homicide Division.

"Homicide detectives believe Jones had been dead for at least several hours prior to discovery."

Police have no suspects at this time. They have discovered that Jones' SUV is missing, and ask for the public's help in locating it.

The vehicle is described as a maroon, four-door 2007 Ford Explorer with Oklahoma tag 076 DEB.

Anyone seeing this vehicle is asked to phone the police at Crime Stoppers, 918-596-COPS, or the homicide tip line at 918 798-8477. Police are also hoping to find someone who knows Jones' whereabouts on the night of Saturday, October 23.

It is Tulsa's 43rd homicide of 2011, Walker said.
