Officers responded to a residence in the 2000 block of Polk Street around 8:18 a.m., after receiving a phone call about a dead body, police Officer Albie Esparza said. Upon arrival officers saw the man was a victim of homicide, which the medical examiner confirmed.

The victim was pronounced deceased at 8:25 a.m., cops said. The actual time of death was unknown, Esparza said. It appeared the victim had been deceased for quite a while, he said.
