Clovis Police say they are investigating a suspicious death after a man's body was found inside an apartment Friday evening.
Police say they received a call around 6 p.m. from someone at CRMC asking them to check on a man at the Ashtree Apartments near Willow and Ashlan.
Officers went to the apartment and had a manager open the door. That's when police say they found a man dead inside the unit.
They decided to leave the apartment and get a search warrant to be able to go back inside and collect evidence.
"That's why they're getting the warrant right now. When that warrant is signed and officers are able to go in and examine what is actually in that apartment. They're standing by," said police spokeswoman Janet Stoll-Lee.
"It's a safe, quiet neighborhood. It's a quiet apartment complex. It's a surprise to everybody. Nothing like this has ever happened ever since I've been here," said Michael Castillo, a resident of the complex.
