Upon arrival, officers found an unresponsive man with no obvious signs of trauma.
Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) personnel responded to the scene and determined the man was deceased, Arrona said.
The Los Angeles County Department of Coroner also responded to recover the body and conduct an autopsy.
