BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The body of a man was found at Roland's Auto Works on 6th Ave. and 6th Street North in Birmingham on Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as 40-year-old Thebious Roland. His father, Dexter Roland, says he was found dead in his office.

"He meant the world to me. If that could have been me in there , that would have been fine with me. I wish I had been here when it happened,"Dexter Roland said.

Police received a call of a person shot at the location. When they got to the scene, they found Roland lying on the ground unresponsive. 

As he was checked out by medics, it couldn't be determined how he died. Police later determined that Roland had been shot and are investigating the death as a homicide.

“Our focus as always will be to find out what happened to the victim and why. Our hope is to bring a sense of closure to Mr. Roland’s family,” Sgt. Bryan Shelton said in a press release.

Police do not have a suspect and the motive for the shooting remains unknown.
