A 20 year-old man has been shot to death on Kent's East Hill, and police believe his death may have been the result of a drug deal gone bad.

Officers found the 20-year-old man, who was later pronounced dead.

  

Police say there was a dispute between the victim and another person, who had fled by the time officers arrived.

  

Witnesses told police the motive likely involved drugs.

  

There is no description of the suspect.
