A man is found shot to death in an Orlando neighborhood, according to deputies.

ORLANDO, Fla. -

Authorities on Tuesday said a man found shot to death in an Orlando neighborhood was wearing an Ironman mask and gloves.

Antonio Carrasquillo-Irizarry, 24, of Chicago, was found shot Monday night on Curry Ford Lane in the Village at Curry Ford Woods neighborhood near Pinar Elementary School.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, a driver called 911 after discovering Carrasquillo-Irizarry lying in the road. The driver thought he had been struck by a vehicle, deputies said.

Investigators said Carrasquillo-Irizarry was suffering from gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Blood drops led detectives to a house, prompting a SWAT situation, but no one was inside when law enforcement officers entered, deputies said.

Deputies said they believe Carrasquillo-Irizarry was shot through the door of the residence.  Two masks, including the Ironman mask, were found at the shooting scene.  A gun was found nearby, too, according to a tweet from the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

No other details were released.
