    Lubbock police are investigating the death of a doctor found shot in his home as a homicide.

    Sgt. Jonathan Stewart says police were called to the home Wednesday afternoon after a landscaper and a maid found the body of Dr. Joseph Sonnier III, chief pathologist for Covenant Health System in Lubbock.

    Stewart says landscapers had found a broken window at the house.

    Stewart tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal (http://bit.ly/NneoMc) that police couldn't elaborate on what type of firearm was used in the homicide.

    Stewart tells The Associated Press that they currently have no suspects in the case.
