FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — An autopsy shows that a New York cyclist killed in Fayetteville in September died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that 32-year-old Mark Boyd II of Islip, New York, was found in a gravel field Sept. 27.

Investigators said Boyd had been seen leaving a location with two men earlier that day.
