Goldsboro police were investigating a body found this morning behind McIntyre Funeral Home on South George Street, a police sergeant confirmed.

Initial unconfirmed reports said a gun was found lying next to a body behind the home.

Police Sgt. Chad Calloway said investigators had been on the scene since about 8 a.m.

The initial report of the incident came in around 7:30 a.m.

"I can confirm that we are doing an investigation behind McIntyre Funeral Home, but it would be very early for me to confirm anything about the investigation."

Calloway said investigators had only begun to process the scene and he could not give an opinion as to whether foul play had occurred.

"I don't want to be wrong," Calloway said.

Police had cordoned off the scene this morning near the intersection of West Wayne Avenue and South George Street.
