ODESSA, TX -- Odessa Police said Sean Lamb, 22, was found dead inside a car Tuesday. On Wednesday police said he might have been kidnapped before he was shot and killed.

“It’s unknown exactly what transpired there, but all we do know is that Lamb sustains multiple gunshot wounds,” said Corporal Steve LeSueur.

Late Tuesday afternoon officers received a call of a man with a gun in 1600 block of Dixie Boulevard.

“Further investigation revealed that a kidnapping actually took place,” said Corporal Steve LeSueur from the Odessa Police Department.

Now police think the two events are related.

“We need the public’s help,” LeSueur said. “We need people to come forward with any information they might have.”

“No arrests have been made and there are no suspects,” LeSueur said. “The investigation is ongoing.”
