A man was found dead inside an apartment in East New York Wednesday morning, according to the NYPD. Law enforcement has deemed the death a homicide.
Officers responded to 706 Hinsdale St. after a 911 call about an unconscious man at approximately 11:15 on Wednesday morning. Investigators say the man was found lying face down on his bed unconscious and unresponsive.
The man, identified as 53-year-old James Hudley, of Brooklyn, had trauma to his head.
Residents say this is a relatively quiet neighborhood, and that an incident like this is out of character.
"It's surprising to see this here," said one resident who asked to remain anonymous. "You wouldn't expect it here, not here. It's quiet."
Officers are currently looking to speak with Hudley's roommate, as neighbors report that they heard arguing from the apartment prior to officers arriving at the scene.
The cause of death has yet to be determined. No other information has been released at this time.
