On the morning of September 30 a man’s body was discovered in the 2600 block of 43 Avenue SE Calgary.

An area resident found a man lying on the ground unresponsive and alerted police shortly before 6:00 am.

When Qwest 103 News arrived on scene, the body had been covered by a pink blanket and a  police helicopter was circling the area. Police then removed the blanket, revealing the body of the deceased male who appeared to be on his knees.

Cause of death has not been confirmed but local residents have said they heard what sounded like several pops shortly before police appeared on scene.

Police have not confirmed whether or not gun shots were fired.
