A body was found early Tuesday morning near a local elementary school in Grand Junction.

The Grand Junction Police Department responded to a call reporting a man who was apparently deceased.

He was in the area adjacent to Orchard Avenue Elementary School between 19th St. and Orchard Ave.

This incident did not affect the school’s start time.

Officials say nothing of suspicious nature was found on scene.

This is an ongoing investigation and we will notify the public of the identity once the coroner’s office makes it available to us.
