Someone discovered a man’s body on Tuesday evening, just before 6 p.m., in the 500 block of 55th Street, Northeast.

That’s the area between the Marvin Gaye trail and H.D. Woodson High School.

Neighbor Sarah Bruce was home when police started arriving.

“And I had my great grandbaby and I would look out the window and say, 'What’s going on?'” Bruce said. “Only thing I seen was just the police cars and when they start wrapping something around.”

Police have not released details about the man’s cause of death.

“We have to leave out and come back in. I come in late at night, my daughter and them leave out early in the morning. So close at home, you’d be afraid,” Bruce said.

The man has not been identified.
