RICHMOND, Va. – Police are investigating after a body was discovered inside a vehicle outside the McDonald’s in Shockoe Bottom.

It happened Wednesday evening at the location at 18th and E. Broad Street.

Police described the victim as a 42-year-old male.

“It is unclear exactly how this person died, but they do not suspect foul play," CBS 6 reporter Jerrita Patterson said.
