Police on the Main Line spent hours overnight investigating a deadly shooting in a normally quiet neighborhood.

Police rushed to Surrey Lane, near Haverford Avenue, in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, for reports of gunshots just before 10:45 p.m. Sunday.

Officers found a man shot multiple times dead on the sidewalk, Lower Merion Township police and the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said.

Police didn’t reveal any details about who may have pulled the trigger or the circumstances leading up to the shooting.

“Initial investigation indicates that this is an isolated incident and there is no known threat to public safety,” police said in a statement.

Police, county detectives and the coroner could be seen investigating early Monday. An autopsy is expected Monday. The man's name was being withheld pending family notification.

Neighbors said they were shaken after hearing several gunshots then helicopters overhead late Sunday night.

"It's disturbing that something like that would happen in this neighborhood, which is such a quiet neighborhood, such a nice neighborhood," resident Ben Plavin said.

Detectives walked the neighborhood Monday morning as they searched for clues.

Earlier Monday morning, The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office declared the death a homicide and asked anyone with information to call Lower Merion police at 610-649-1000 or county detectives at 610-278-3368.
