A body was found Thursday night inside a semi-truck that was parked less than a block from the CVS drug store that was set afire in Baltimore on Monday night in the unrest following the death of Freddie Gray.
The body of an adult man was found sometime after about 9 p.m., said Sgt. Jarron Jackson, a spokesman for Baltimore City police, and details were few.
Jackson said officers are treating it as a suspicious death. So far, he said around 11 p.m., the body did not appear to be related to the events of Thursday night or of the last several days of unrest in Baltimore.
The truck remained near the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues late Thursday night. That intersection was mostly calm, and the streets had essentially been cleared by police, due to the city’s 10 p.m. curfew.
