State police and the York County Coroner's Office were called to Springfield Township, just off the Glen Rock exit of Interstate 83, after a body was found there Friday morning — and Coroner Pam Gay said the death is suspicious.

Shannon Martin, 36, with a last known address of 237 Harding Court in York City, was found with apparent gunshot wounds, according to the coroner's office.

The coroner said Friday that Martin's body was found not far from the interstate, and "foul play is suspected."

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning at Allentown's Lehigh Valley Hospital, according to Gay, who said she will not rule on the cause or manner of death until after the autopsy. That's standard procedure, she said.

The body was found about 10:30 a.m. off Seaks Run Road.

According to a release from the coroner's office, the body did not appear to have been there long, and there is no indication Martin committed suicide. The death is being investigated as a possible homicide, the coroner's office said.
