Montgomery County authorities have launched a homicide investigation after a man was found dead Sunday night in Lower Merion Township.

About 10:45 p.m., police responded to the report of a shooting on the 1400 block of Surrey Lane in the township’s Wynnewood section, just off City Avenue, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement. Officers said they found a dead man who appeared to have been shot multiple times.

The man was identified on Monday as Nahray Mumakk Crisden, 19, of Philadelphia.

It was not immediately clear whether he was shot on the street or inside a home, or whether authorities had any idea who may have shot him and why.

Montgomery County detectives and the Lower Merion Police Department are jointly conducting the homicide investigation. An autopsy was to be done Monday, authorities said.

They ask anyone with information to call Lower Merion police at 610-649-1000 or Montgomery County detectives at 610-278-3368. Tips can also be submitted anonymously by using the STOPit! app on Apple and Android phones and submitting the code MONTCOPA to access the county’s version of the platform.
