Officials are investigating a homicide in Fall River.

Police say they received calls just before 1:00 Sunday morning about a man being shot outside of the Ship's Cove Apartment Complex at 130 Canal Street.

First responders found 26-year-old David Rodriguez, who lived there, near a loading dock outside of the building. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner will perform an autopsy later Sunday or Monday to determine official cause of death.
