UPDATE: The Bradley County Sheriff's Office tells Channel 3 that the individual shot and killed early Sunday morning was 36-year-old Aaron "Josh" Davis. Bradley County Chief Deputy Brian Smith says the investigation is intensive.  

Police got involved as the victim was being driven to the hospital and now the Bradley County Sheriff's Office is trying to get the victim's friends to cooperate.

Police say Aaron Stacasta ("Josh") Davis, 36, passed away after being shot once in the abdomen.

"An autopsy will be done, and as far as I know it was one gunshot wound," said Capt. Steve Lawson, Criminal Investigations Division.
     
Davis was at a home on Georgetown Road in Cleveland Saturday night.
     
There were no cars in the driveway on Monday, but over the weekend this was where people met up to party.

"There was a party there Saturday night, there were several people there," Capt. Lawson said, "And we just want to try and interview as many of those participants at the party as we possibly can."
     
Police believe someone at the party knows what led to the violence.
     
No one ever called police but deputies in a patrol car saw another car speeding down Georgetown Rd early Sunday morning with its flashers on.
     
Deputies eventually got the driver to pull over and that's when they learned a shooting victim was inside.

Police then followed the car to SkyRidge Medical Center.
     
As Davis was taken in for treatment police tried to get more information from the three other men who dropped him off.
     
The incident report says the men would not cooperate with police.
     
A helicopter flew the victim to Erlanger in Chattanooga where he later died.  
     
Police are now turning to his friends and others at the party for answers.

"We are trying to interview as many people as we can to come up with the real truth in this case," said Capt. Lawson.
