A murder investigation is underway in Athens after a man was shot and then run over. He was found in the middle of the street Saturday.

It all happened around 3 a.m. near Western Avenue and 122nd Street.

Investigators initially thought the man died following a hit-and-run. But when the man was rushed to the hospital, the medical team realized he had been shot at least two times, prior to being hit by a vehicle.

The driver didn't stop after striking the man with his vehicle.

The victim later died at the hospital.

No arrests have been made.

If you have any information about this case, you're urged to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department at (323) 890-5500.
