Officers were called to the scene on the report of a person down, and found the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene and he has not been identified.

The man’s body was found in the street, and it’s not clear if he was trying to cross the street. The man’s identity was not released, but police say he appears to be in his 20s and was wearing headphones and running shoes.
