Chandler police are investigating the death of a 50-year-old man who was found shot inside his pickup truck outside a market on Monday morning.

The man, who police identified as Wendell H. Hunter, was found about 10:15 a.m. by an employee of the Mama Mia Market, 731 S. Arizona Ave., according to Chandler police Detective David Ramer. He had been shot at least once.

Ramer said that Hunter made a purchase inside the store and evidently returned to his vehicle before he was shot. A shotgun was recovered from the scene. The death is suspicious, Ramer said, but suicide also has not been ruled out.

If the death is ruled as a homicide, it would be Chandler's first homicide of the year. Last year, the city had four homicides, Ramer said.
