Fire crews found a man's body in a channel between Roosevelt Island and the Virginia shoreline Monday morning, officials say.

The D.C. Fire Department said their water rescue team was first called to the scene for a report of a body at around 6:44 a.m. after a woman saw something in the water and called 911.

Police say the man was Hispanic.

Fire crews recovered the body before D.C. Police took over the investigation.
