A block of Prytania Street is closed as officials investigate a person found dead of what are believed to be natural causes, New Orleans police said.

The coroner’s investigator and police officers were focusing their attention on a small, light-colored sedan in the 4400 block of Prytania around 6:30 p.m. The death appears to be from natural causes, said NOPD Officer Frank Robertson III, a departmental spokesman.

The car was parked alongside the Sophie B. Wright campus, which is currently vacant for renovations.

Further details have not been released.
