A man's body was discovered Tuesday off U.S. 24 near the Manitou Springs exit, west of Colorado Springs, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said.

The man had a gunshot wound and authorities found a gun at the scene, said spokesman Lt. Jeff Kramer. Authorities have not determined if the wound was self inflicted.

A passerby noticed a body by a car parked on a pulloff on eastbound U.S. 24, Kramer said.

The car and the body were obscured by a mound of dirt and could not be seen from the road.
