MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office started out Monday morning working a death investigation in the Bridlebrook Subdivision of Pike Road.

Very few details are available for release at this time.

Deputies were called to the scene in the 1000 block of Stableway Rd. Monday morning on the call of a subject shot. When they arrived they located a deceased white male in his 20's in one of the homes.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has since upgraded the investigation to a homicide.

Authorities told our reporter on the scene that a suspect vehicle has been located however the person inside the vehicle "took off."

Alabama State Troopers confirm their helicopter is assisting the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in the search for a white male suspect in the area of Pike Road and Vaughn Road however it is unclear if this search is related to the Stableway homicide.

The Town of Pike Road issued this statement on today's homicide:
