CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A man is dead after being shot early Sunday morning.

It happened around 1:45 am at an apartment complex on Edgebrook Drive. When police got there, they found 21-year-old Scott Roth with life-threatening injuries. He died at the hospital.

Police say it started with an argument. They believe several people were there when the shooting happened. They have no suspect information yet and nobody has been arrested. 

Right now, police don’t know if this had anything to do with the shooting from the day before that left one man recovering in the hospital. That happened early Saturday morning in the 2500 block of West Springfield Avenue.
