Bangor police are investigating the death of a man at a local rooming house as suspicious.
The body was found at about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday in an apartment at 40 Second St., police said.
The man has not been identified.
Patrol officers and firefighters were initially dispatched to the apartment for a report of an injured person, Sgt. Wade Betters, public information officer for the department, said Wednesday afternoon. They found the deceased man when they arrived, he said.
Betters described the white clapboard residence near the intersection of Cedar and Second streets as “a rooming house.”
The man’s body was removed through an entrance at the rear of the building at about 3:30 p.m. and taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta, where an autopsy is scheduled
