FERGUSON (PIX11) – The body of a young black man was found the day after unrest and looting in Ferguson following the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, was discovered around 9 a.m. slumped inside a white Pontiac parked in front of an apartment complex on Glen Owen Drive.

The victim had no identification, and there was no registration inside the vehicle, KTVI is reporting.  The driver’s side window appeared to have been shot out.

The night before, a witness told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he saw four people armed with guns outside the Canfield apartment building “talking about looting and saying they wanted to kill someone.”

“I knew it was going to be true when I got up this morning, I saw this, the man, identified as Richard Taylor, told the paper.  “There was a lot going on last night, but I thought at least someone would show up to arrest these guys.”

Police are calling the death suspicious and continue to investigate, no arrests have been made.
