Police were conducting a death investigation after a man’s body was found Sunday morning in north suburban North Chicago.

At 8:10 a.m., officers responded to a home in the 1700 block of Greenfield Avenue and found the 35-year-old with what appeared to be a gunshot wound, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The Lake County coroner’s office identified him as Benson Saintil. Preliminary results of an autopsy conducted Monday morning indicated he died of “injuries caused by gunshots.”

Toxicology tests were pending and the death remained under investigation by the coroner’s office and the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.
