Police in Little Rock are investigating a homicide, the city's 40th of the year.

The Little Rock Police Department said on Twitter shortly before 7:30 p.m. that officers were at the scene of the killing in the 600 block of west 24th St.

Police were called about 6:30 p.m. after children walking through an alley in the area saw someone lying on the ground bleeding, Officer Steve Moore said at the scene.

Police located the deceased victim, who appeared to be an adult, Moore said. The cause of death isn't known, but it is clearly a homicide, Moore said.

The victim had likely been in the alley a few hours, police said.

Investigators were said to be canvassing the surrounding neighborhood for possible witnesses.
