PHELPS — The Ontario County sheriff's office believes the man found dead near Hayes Road late Tuesday night was shot there.

Sheriff Kevin Henderson relayed that information to the media at a press conference Wednesday afternoon, but offered few other new details, including the man's identity.

There was no identification found with the body.

Henderson and sheriff's office investigators are asking anyone who was in the area around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, and might have seen something suspicious, to call the sheriff's office at (585) 396-4638.
