MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man has been found dead after he was kidnapped.

Police found Luis Santiago, 39, unresponsive and suffering from a gunshot wound Friday in the 3300 block of Getwell Road.

He was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

Santiago's wife told police two suspects forced them into their truck and robbed them. The suspects then assaulted the wife, police said.

At some point during the abduction, the wife was able to escape the car and call for help.

Police are searching for 17-year-old Kevvon Clark. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The identity of the second suspect is still unknown. If you can help authorities, call CrimeStoppers at (901) 528-CASH.

Relatives say Santiago was a hardworking man who lived for his 8-year-old son. They say he and his wife had been separated for years and that he had just signed divorced papers and was supposed to get full custody of the son.

"He was a good person, a very, very good person, a good father," a family member said.

He say this is a very strange case, but he believes police will get to the bottom of what happened and find the all people responsible.

"Everybody knows it was not a robbery," he said. "I really don't know what to think now ... but I think there is a bunch of lies behind this."
