A Superior man is dead after a morning shooting on Sunday. Police say they are searching for suspects in a crime that right now a appears to have no motive.

The victim is believed to be Toriano “Snapper” Cooper, and it appears he was shot on his lawn just after 10 a.m.

Witnesses told police they heard three gunshots and had seen Cooper cleaning this car just moments before those shots were fired. According to the authorities, the victim was able to get back inside his home before succumbing to his injuries.

As a group of onlookers watched police circle the house, WDIO reports a boy yelled out a window asking people to have respect since his uncle had just died. Right now police have no suspects and no indication why this man was shot, but the investigation is ongoing.

Police are seeking the public’s help and are asking anyone with information to the Superior Police Department at (715) 395-7468.
