Windsor police continue to canvass the neighbourhood after a man was found dead downtown Wednesday morning.
Officers were called to the 900 Block of Church Street shortly after 7 a.m. and located the deceased man.
A coroner has attended the scene and deceased has been removed.
Witnesses on scene say a victim may have sustained a gun shot wound -- while another witness says his wife believes she heard a gunshot last night.
Windsor police could not confirm whether the man sustained a gunshot wound.
Major Crimes investigators were called to the scene and a Windsor Police Command Bus is at the scene to assist officers in the investigation due to the cold weather.
The roadways in the area of Church Street between Erie Street and Caroline Street will remain closed until further notice.
Police say they’re not sure of the death is suspicious at this time.
There is no direct threat to the public at all at this point in the investigation," said Sgt. Steve Betteridge. "It is a sudden death investigation and our goal is to determine exactly what happened."
More details are expected to be released throughout the day.
One witness said his wife thought she heard a gunshot last night. Another witness says he discovered the young man who looked to have sustained a gun shot. @CTVWindsor at 6 @WindsorPolice pic.twitter.com/fgf8oYatoY— Bob BellaciccoCTV (@BBellaciccoCTV) February 14, 2018
