A 59-year-old transient apparently died of natural causes Tuesday at a Huntington Beach homeless shelter.

Staff at the city’s “navigation center” at 17642 Beach Blvd. called 911 about 5 a.m. to report a guest in “medical distress,” according to Huntington Beach police Lt. Dafvid Dereszynski.

Investigators said the death does not appear to be suspicious and that the man had “pre-existing medical conditions,” Dereszynski said.

The transient, whose name was not immediately released, had “ties to Huntington Beach,” the lieutenant said.
