A man was found dead in an alley Saturday morning in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side.

Officers responding to reports of a person down about 9:45 a.m. found the 53-year-old unresponsive on the ground in an alley in the 5800 block of South Wabash, according to Chicago Police.

He was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:57 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Sunday did not rule on the man’s cause and manner of death, with results pending further studies.
