DANVILLE, Va. Around 10 O'clock Friday morning, police were called to a house on Aspen Street for a report of a man shot. 47 year-old Mark Graves eventually died from several gunshot wounds.

Ralph Harvey lives nearby and thinks crimes like this one happen too frequently in the city.

"It's a terrible thing to lose anyone, especially someone in their forties. It's not their time to go , you know that," said Harvey. "Understand it doesn't do anything really. You aren't going to gain anything by taking someone else's life."

Police have not released a name or description of a suspect or a possible motive for the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact Danville Crime Stoppers at (434) 793-0000, the Danville Police Department at (434) 799-6508.
