Police say a man who was found unresponsive in the street in the Moss Park area of the city Sunday morning has died.

Police were called to the area of Jarvis and Shuter streets around 8:30 a.m. after reports a man was found in obvious distress.

The body was apparently found between a fence and an apartment building.

An area resident who found the body and called 911 tells CityNews the man was in the fetal position with a coat over him.

Paramedics say the man was without vital signs when they arrived and he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Initially police said they were treating the death as a suspicious but now say that is no longer the case and no criminal activity is involved.
