A Shelbyville man was found shot to death at a Winchester city park Monday afternoon.

Harper appeared to have been shot several times with a pistol when found by an officer. Harper had apparently been in the park most of the day.

Foul play is suspected and the case is being investigated as a homicide, Lewis said.
