A man was found dead under suspicious circumstances Friday on a trail in Ernest E. Debs Regional Park in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Fire Department received a call just before 3:30 p.m. from a person who discovered the man unresponsive and not breathing on a paved trailed north of the park’s picnic grounds, said department spokesperson Brian Humphrey.

The LAFD dispatcher instructed the caller to perform lifesaving measures on the man as paramedics were sent to the scene.

LAFD units took over resuscitation attempts once they arrived, but found the man was beyond help and was declared dead at the scene, Humphrey said. His name was not immediately released pending notification of his next of kin.

While administering CPR, paramedics discovered the man appeared to have suffered an unspecified wound, and cordoned off the area to allow for a Los Angeles Police Department investigation, Humphrey said.
