MARICOPA, Ariz. -- Authorities have identified an employee of a grain business in the Pinal County community of Maricopa who was found fatally shot.

Police say the shooting of 26-year-old Orlando Requena of Casa Grande was reported early Tuesday morning.

Officers initially responded to a call about shots fired. They arrived at Arizona Grain to find Requena suffering from gunshot wounds. He was found in the off-load area along with several shell casings.

Requena was pronounced dead at the scene. He had worked at the company for two years.
