At about 5:30 a.m., a 911 caller reported a man was down near the intersection of Capistrano Avenue and Country Club Drive. Officers arrived at the scene and found a deceased man, according to the Atascadero Police Department.

Members of the Atascadero Investigations Unit, along with the police department’s crime scene technician, then began an investigation.
