Inside, officers found a man with gunshot wounds, Wright said. He was pronounced dead at the scene and his identity was not released.

The gunman fled, but police are unsure whether he fled on foot or in a vehicle. Detectives are reviewing surveillance video from nearby businesses to determine whether the incident was recorded, Wright said.

A description of the suspect was not available.

It's unclear what led to the shooting, and police do not know whether the victim was a customer or employee at the boxing gym.
