Detectives were called to the scene and immediately began investigating, police said.
“We have crime scene investigators on scene who are processing the crime scene,” said FPD Lieutenant Paul McCormick. “We have detectives who are conducting interviews, so they’re conducting the preliminary investigation. And then obviously we’ll be working with the coroner’s office on determining the cause and manner of death.”
There will be a heavy police presence in the area for the next several hours, police said. At this time, there are no known threats to the community. Police declined to release any additional details due to the sensitive nature of the investigation.
