Death Investigation On Queen Anne (Updated)

SPD’s homicide unit was called in to assist in a death investigation on Queen Anne this morning, after medics found a man dead in the back of a home.

Medics were called to the 1800 block of 3rd Ave W around 7:30am and found an “unconcious, unreponsive male,” according to SFD spokeswoman Sue Stangl. Medics then called in police when they determined the man was dead.

Officers arrived on scene and contacted the homicide unit, “but that doesn’t necessarily mean [this is] a homiicide,” according to SPD spokesman Mark Jamieson.

Update: Police tell us they found a man in his 40s at the bottom of an outdoor stairwell.

More as we get it.

UPDATE: SPD says this is not a homicide. It appears the man slipped and fell down a flight of stairs.
