    Danville police are investigating a deadly shooting that took place early Saturday morning.

    Director of Public Safety Larry Thomason said police were called to the 1600 block of Edgewood shortly after 5 a.m.

    Thomason said witnesses told police it looked like there was some sort of disturbance in that area.

    When an officer arrived on scene at one of the apartments they found a male victim.

    The 32-year-old man was the victim of a gunshot wound.

    The vermilion County Coroner later identified that man as William L. Banks.

    An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.

    A person of interest has been developed, but no further details are being released at this time.
