This morning, tipster Martin H. let us know about an incident near Buena Vista Park.

"They found a dead body on the corner of Buena Vista Avenue East and Buena Vista Terrace," he told us. "On the sidewalk next to a car ... It was roped off and the police were there for several hours."

We reached out to the SFPD, who confirmed that police responded to a call for a well-being check on an adult man at that intersection around 6:10 a.m.

Officers arrived at the scene and found the man, who was unresponsive. They summoned medics, who pronounced him dead at the scene.

The SFPD's Ofc. Robert Rueca said the city's medical examiner was currently conducting an investigation into the cause of death, but that "there were no signs of foul play or physical signs of trauma."

Though the death is still being treated as suspicious until police can gather further information, Rueca said it's not being investigated as a homicide.
