The Atwater Police Department says they are investigating a suspicious death after receiving reports of a domestic violence at a residence in Atwater.
Officers responded to the 1400 block of Packers Street at around 8:50 Saturday night to attempt to contact the suspect in a domestic violence call that occurred in the 700 block of Wayside in the City of Atwater minutes before officers arrived.
Upon arrival, officers observed a Hispanic Male Adult through a window that appeared injured and lying in the living room of the residence.
