CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — A man has been found dead at a men’s shelter in Maryland that authorities say was evacuated for a carbon monoxide leak.

One of the 67 clients evacuated from the facility was hospitalized. His current condition is unknown.
Emergency medical services Capt. Tim Rostkowski says firefighters were trying to determine the source of the leak.
