OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma City police have no suspects in the death of a man whose body was found facedown in a pool of blood behind a northwest Oklahoma City tire shop.

Hibdon Tires Plus manager Donnie Huff says one of his employees found the man about 7:30 yesterday morning while parking behind the shop. Huff says the victim appeared to be a white man in his late 40s or early 50s who had suffered some sort of head trauma.

Police Lieutenant Daimon Alexander says investigators were working to identify the man and hadn't determined what caused his death.

Huff says a call center next door is open 24 hours a day and employees there usually call him at home to report anything unusual at the store.

He says a woman from the call center said she saw a car leaving the store's lot about 3:30 AM, but Huff says often turn around there.
