Man found dead outside home in Berkeley

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Berkeley police are investigating the suspicious death of a man found outside his home early this morning, a police spokeswoman said.

Officers responded to a report of an unresponsive male in the 2500 block of Piedmont Avenue shortly before 4 a.m., Berkeley police Officer Jennifer Coats said.

Berkeley police officers and firefighters arrived to the scene where they found a 20-year-old man dead, Coats said.

The man was identified as Berkeley resident Apoorve Agarwal, according to the Alameda County coroner's bureau.

Foul play does not appear to be a factor and alcohol may have played a role in the death, according to Coats.

Police did not release further details this afternoon.
