A 48-year-old man was found shot to death in a Lawrence home Wednesday morning, prosecutors said.

Police were called to 75 Manchester St. around 5:50 a.m. “for a reported body,” Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said in a statement.

“They found a deceased 48-year old male,” the prosecutors said. “The matter is being investigated as a homicide. No further information is available at this time. We cannot comment on law enforcement communications nor will we discuss suspects.”

In a separate statement, Lawrence police said investigators found a gun next to the man’s body.

Officials did not identify the victim.
