Springfield police say a man has been found dead in the basement of a live music and entertainment venue downtown.

Crime scene tape is up around “The Complex” at 307 Park Central East.

Officers at the scene say the victim had a gunshot wound, and although his identity hasn’t been confirmed, the man is believed to be affiliated with the business.

Springfield Police Public Affairs Officer Jasmine Bailey tells KTTS News the death is “suspicious,” and the department’s Criminal Investigations Division is on scene.

A police call log shows officers were dispatched to the club at 9:32 a.m. Thursday.

Police say a woman who’s a friend of the victim found him.

The venue hosted a concert at the venue Wednesday night.
