Spokane police are investigating the suspicious death of man found on sidewalk in northeast Spokane.

The man, who was in his 30s, was found before 6 a.m. in the 500 block of East Crown Avenue “with a large amount of blood” near his body, said Spokane Police Officer Teresa Fuller. The location is about a block northeast of NorthTown mall.

Investigators are working the area now, questioning neighbors. Police have not determined a cause of death.

“We’re looking at all possibilities,” Fuller said.
