Police investigating death on northeast side of city

Fort Wayne police Sunday night were investigating the death of a man in a home on the city's northeast side.

Details were not being released Sunday night, but police spokesman Michael Joyner did say the man's girlfriend returned to her home in the 7400 block of Placer Run and found the man dead.

Police responded to a call of a "male down," Joyner said.

A cause of death was unknown and the man's identity was not released.
