Seattle police are investigating a homicide after a man was found dead Saturday  after a car sped away in the 8400 block of First Avenue South.

Witnesses told detectives they saw some kind of disturbance and a car heading away fast just before 3:30 p.m. When they discovered a body on the ground, they called police.

Seattle Police Detective Patrick Michaud said little information was available. Police were waiting Saturday evening for the medical examiner to determine the cause of death. The man was probably in his 30s. But Michaud said police have not yet identified him or any suspects.

The incident happened south of the city’s southern waste-transfer station, on the edge of the Highland Park neighborhood.
