The medical examiner has ruled that a man who died after being found unresponsive in a Pittsfield, Mass. parking lot last weekend died from a gunshot wound to the head.

James Dominguez III, of Springfield, was found in a parking lot behind a bar near 129 Fenn St. at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. After police and EMT's performed CPR at the scene, he was taken to Berkshire Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that a car near the scene was riddled with several bullet holes.

Pittsfield Police have not announced an arrest or a possible motive in the killing. Police are asking anyone with information to call 413-448-9700.

The death was the city's first homicide of the year and the second in as many months.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
