A man was found dead Sunday by a creek near a Colorado Springs park, police said.
The death is being investigated as suspicious because of possible trauma to the body, said police Sgt. James Sokolik.
Officers responded about 10:30 a.m. to South Shooks Run Park at Corona Street and Fountain Boulevard just southeast of downtown and found a body under a bridge near Fountain Creek, Sokolik said. People strolling through the area reported the body, he added.
The park's playground and a section of the creek were taped off Sunday afternoon as the police department's Major Crimes Unit investigated the death.
Westbound lanes of Fountain Boulevard will be closed at Corona Street until approximately 7 p.m. Sunday, police said.
No other details were released.
