Tacoma police are investigating the death of a 28-year-old man whose body was found in an alley Thursday morning.

Tribal police were called about 10:45 a.m. to an alley in the 6200 block of 29th Street Northeast after someone found the man lying on the ground.

He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way, where he later died.

Detectives are trying to determine how the man ended up in the alley and what happened to him.

The death was not being investigated as a homicide Thursday, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
