A man who had suffered a large gash on his head was found dead Wednesday afternoon outside the Panera Bread on Broadway. Passersby found the man’s body at the bottom of the outdoor steps between Panera and a Seattle Central Community College building. Officials have not yet released the man’s identity.
Seattle Police told CHS Wednesday they had not interviewed any witnesses and are still investigating the cause of death. An officer at the scene told CHS there was nothing that indicated foul play at that time.
One of the first people on the scene was a Game Stop employee, who told CHS he found the man facedown, unconscious, and unresponsive.
“He was bleeding from the head, it could have been a head or neck injury, so I knew to let the professionals handle it,” said Sean Sullivan.
Sullivan told CHS medics soon arrived and began performing CPR. At that time a crowd had formed, prompting police to tape-off the alleyway.
