Sheriff's deputies shut down a stretch of 145th East Avenue north of Catoosa early Friday due to an homicide investigation.

The Rogers County Sheriff's Office says they got a 911 call about a body lying on the side of the road at around 2 a.m.  Deputies and Catoosa Police arrived and found a male victim in his late 20s or early 30s, who they said had been shot multiple times.

The area is north of Pine and south of Tiger Switch Road near several rock quarries.  

Deputies said it appears the victim was shot at where his body was found.  They said there was no identification on the man's body.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information about the shooting or the victim to call their tipline at 918-341-3620.
