A Pizza Hut delivery driver in Wichita, Kansas, was found dead inside his own car on Sunday, Nov. 26.

Hasan Rahman, 26, was found dead in the car’s trunk with a gunshot wound, Wichita police said.

Officers responded to a call around 11:45 a.m. on Sunday about an unknown car in east Wichita, and found the body that was later identified as Rahman inside the vehicle, according to CBS affiliate KWCH.

Wichita Police Lt. Todd Ojile said that both the vehicle and Rahman were being sought by police after being reported missing, ABC affiliate KAKE reported.

As of writing on Monday, Nov. 27, no arrests had been made and no suspect had been identified.

Police said it did not appear that Rahman was robbed.

Rahman was delivering pizzas to two addresses located in the 1100 and 1300 blocks of N. Williamsburg on Saturday night.

When he did not return from the deliveries, coworkers became concerned and went to look for him.  They discovered property belonging to Pizza Hut at the final address, KWCH reported.

That night, they contacted police to report that Rahman was missing.

Police tried to locate Rahman but could not find him, and could not find anyone who had seen him or anything suspicious in the area, according to KAKE.

Police say they are currently investigating the death as a homicide.

That same night, a mother and her son were reportedly found dead in East Huntington, just three blocks from the address where Rahman’s body was found, according to KAKE.

Lt. Ojile said he didn’t believe Rahman’s deathwas connected with this case.

Over the weekend, there were a total of four homicides in Wichita, bringing the total number this year to 32, KAKE reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call Wichita Police Departement detectives at 316-268-4181 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
