Rochester, New York — Tuesday a man was found dead in a vehicle on the city’s west side.

According to authorities, the death has been ruled suspicious and is being investigated as a homicide.

The investigation is centered around a vehicle near the corner of Brown and Silver Streets.

The victim, described as a man in his 30s or 40s, was found dead in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, according to RPD Capt. Frank Umbrino. Officers responded after a passerby contacted police.

“He does appear to be the victim of a murder,” Umbrino said. “The victim was found in the vehicle, and we don’t know much beyond that at this point. Once the medical examiner gets here, hopefully, we’ll know a little bit more and that can point us in the right direction.”

Shortly before 12 p.m., officers responded at the scene.
