The body of a delivery man who had been shot to death was found by his wife inside his truck in the Antelope Valley community of Littlerock, authorities said Wednesday.

The wife of Miguel Romero, 46, found him in the 9800 block of East Avenue W-8 about 8:10 p.m. Tuesday and called 911. He had suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, Deputy Mike Barraza said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. Romero’s wife told deputies her husband was delivering corn in the area, and when he was late coming home, she went looking for him, Barraza said.

A motive for the shooting was unknown, and no suspect information was released.
