First on FOX 2, investigations are underway as a man is found dead in a field just a few hours ago.

We reached out to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson who tells us the adult male was found at the corner of Mile 6 West and Highway 107 in Elsa about 5:30 pm, with a gunshot wound.

The motive behind the death is not being released at this time. However, officials say they’re not ruling out suicide.

We’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more.
