The body of 26-year-old Bruce Santos was found around 10 p.m. Tuesday by a passerby on Broad Street, which is about six blocks from the Prudential Center arena.

Authorities say Santos died from a gunshot wound, but further details were not disclosed.

It was not immediately clear what type of work Santos did at the airport. Authorities believe he was on his way home from work when he apparently was confronted by a robber.
