SALT LAKE CITY — Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in Salt Lake City on Saturday morning.

A passerby spotted the body of the deceased man near 338 W. Hansen Avenue about 7:45 a.m. and called police, according to Salt Lake Police Lt. Bill Manzanares.

The man apparently died of a gunshot wound, but investigators found no shell casings at the scene, Manzanares said.

Police did not receive any reports of shots fired in the area, he added.
