A man was found dead in a car in the 1200 block of Potter Dr. in Colorado Springs early Tuesday morning.
Police say a security guard at the Rustic Hills Apartment complex found the man around 1:15 and called 911. The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had an obvious head wound.
The victim has not been identified. He appears to have been in his 20s. The coroner will perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
The car has been impounded, pending a search warrant and investigation.
Police are combing the area, seeking potential witnesses and evidence.
The apartment complex is across from Mitchell High School. The school has been notified of the death, but CSPD Sgt. Darrin Abbink says students and staff are not in danger.
