Authorities have identified a man's body found in a manhole on Detroit's west side.

The Wayne County medical examiner's office says Monday that 19-year-old O'Sean Lockett died of multiple gunshot wounds.

A water department crew performing regular maintenance found the body Saturday afternoon. Police described the body as extremely decomposed and said it appeared to have been in the sewer for weeks.

Lockett's relatives said he was reported missing July 8.
