SUFFOLK -- A young man was found dead in a Suffolk home late Wednesday night.

13News has learned the victim is 20-year old Brandon Alston.

Detectives and CSI officers remained on the scene six hours after gunshots were heard in the 200 block of Blackstone Way.

Officers who got to the scene around 11:00 p.m., talked with residents, and found the storm door on the house had been shattered and there were bullet holes in the main door, said city spokeswoman Debbie George.

Alston was found dead on the floor near the front door. There was no one else in the home.

The victim's friend Asiah Goodwin watched emergency crews take his body out of the house.

'I started crying because I'm like 'Why? Why did this happen?' 'He's not a bad person and nobody deserves to die like that,' said Goodwin.
