A man was found fatally shot in a vehicle late Thursday outside an abandoned Pine Bluff home, according to police.

In a statement Friday morning, authorities identified the victim as 34-year-old Robert Wilkerson of Pine Bluff.

Officers responded around 9:25 p.m. to the 300 block of East 21st Street in reference to a person shot, the Pine Bluff Police Department said in a news release.

Department spokesman Lt. David De Foor said police had also been notified of gunshots in the area.

In the driveway of a boarded-up, unoccupied residence, officers found Wilkerson "slumped over" inside a parked vehicle, De Foor said.

Wilkerson had suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

No suspects have been named in the homicide. An investigation is ongoing.
