A 32-year-old man was found dead under suspicious circumstances Monday in a common courtyard at a Stockton-area residential complex.

The fatality in the 3000 block of Imperial Avenue was reported about 9:40 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The deceased, whose name was withheld pending family notification, appeared to have suffered injuries that responding patrol officers “could not reasonably account for,” said Lt. Matt Dobbs.

“Out of an abundance of caution, investigators from the (SDPD) Homicide Unit were called to the scene and are investigating the incident as a suspicious death,” the lieutenant said.
