The man was yet to be positively identified Saturday, coroner’s officials said, however police initially described him as a man in his mid-20s who was believed to be a Monrovia resident.
A passer-by called 9-1-1 to report an injured man was lying in the parking lot, though the caller did not know what had happened to the man, Coleman said. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
