ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Prosecutors say their early investigation shows the case of an Albany man found dead in the alley off West Roosevelt Avenue Friday evening is a homicide.
    
Investigators are waiting on final autopsy reports, but it appears that Kenneth Washington was shot. District Attorney Greg Edwards says good police work led to forensic evidence and suspects in the death investigation.

"There are some persons that will be persons of interest.  I can say that at this point." They are not in custody?  "They are not in custody, but will definitely be persons of interest that we will be looking at very shortly," said Greg Edwards, Dougherty D.A.      

Washington's body was found in an alley near the 700 block of North Washington about 5:30 Friday.

 Coroner Michael Fowler said the GBI Crime Lab was doing an autopsy today.
