Police are investigating the death of a man on the east side of Indianapolis.

Officers were dispatched to a report of an unconscious person at East 11th Street and Tecumseh Street around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police believe there may have been an altercation between two men just before officers arrived. The man found unresponsive was pronounced dead at the scene after EMS personnel attempted life-saving procedures.

Police say the other man engaged in the alleged fight is cooperating with investigators and is not under arrest at this time. Detectives will await an autopsy to find the cause and manner of death to determine if they will pursue charges in the case.
