A 46-year-old man has been identified as the victim of a shooting death last week in a northeast Edmonton residence.

Byron Harvey, who lived in Edmonton, died of a gunshot wound on Aug. 24th, Edmonton police said in a news release Wednesday.

An autopsy completed Tuesday also confirmed the manner of Harvey's death was a homicide, police said.

Police were called to a home in the Eastwood neighbourhood, near 119th Avenue and 79th Street, at about 12:40 a.m. about a weapons complaint.

After police arrived, they found Harvey inside the residence. He died later in hospital.
