State police at Rockview and Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers on Friday investigated a man’s death in Snow Shoe borough.
Sayers confirmed that authorities had launched an investigation. He would not elaborate on the incident beyond calling the man’s death “suspicious” and did not identify the man to reporters.
Police said there is no threat to the community.
Snow Shoe Fire Company was dispatched at 7:14 a.m. to the 200 block of Moshannon Avenue for what Centre County dispatchers described as a cardiac arrest. About a dozen state troopers and a forensics team responded to the scene over the course of the day to collect possible evidence and fingerprints in and around the driveway where the man’s body was found.
A state trooper said the man was found by neighbors, and first responders performed CPR, but they were unable to revive him. Police will not publicly identify the man until family has been notified. State police said they will continue to investigate the man’s death.
Authorities and Snow Shoe EMS removed the man’s body from the scene shortly after noon.
Snow Shoe Fire Company representatives and the Centre County District Attorney’s Office could not be reached for comment.
