Area Central detectives are conducting a homicide investigation after a man was found dead early Monday in the Southwest Side Little Village neighborhood.

About 1:50 a.m., a friend found the 54-year-old man dead in an abandoned building in the 2700 block of South Komensky, according to Chicago Police.

The friend left the scene to flag down officers, who found the victim lying face-up, bloodied and with signs of trauma, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The building is a spot where homeless people are known to sleep, police said.

An autopsy Tuesday did not rule on his cause and manner of death pending further investigation, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
