Dontrell Tyree Curry, 27, of Ranson was shot in the head sometime around 5 a.m. in a second-floor residence in Building 8 at Apple Tree Apartments, according to Ranson Police Chief William Roper. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Roper said Curry was not a resident of the apartment. His body will be taken to the medical examiner’s office in Charleston for an autopsy, Roper said.
