A man was found dead Monday at the Chicago Red Line station on the Near North Side.

Chicago fire officials said the man was found dead in a “vent shaft” at the Chicago station, 800 N. State St.

The man is believed to be in his 30s, and he was found in a restricted area, Chicago police said. There were no visible signs of trauma to his body.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details on the death.
