Reading police found the bullet-riddled body of a man next to a self-storage unit in the city early Wednesday morning.
Police said they received a call from a passer-by about 2:20 a.m. reporting a man down near a locker at a storage business in the 400 block of Blair Avenue.
When investigators arrived at the site just off Schuylkill Avenue they found the body of a 36-year-old Latino man on the ground toward the back of the storage facility.
Sgt. John M. Solecki of the criminal investigations division said the victim did odd jobs at the storage facility for patrons – like watch their cars and valuables – for tips.
