Officials are investigating the death of a man who apparently fell down the stairs Monday.

Around 8 a.m., a person called 911 about a man laying on the ground in the 4700 block of Topaz Street, near Eastern and Tropicana avenues. Paramedics pronounced the man deceased.

While it appears the man fell down the stairs but police are still investigating. A coroner's autopsy will determine the cause of death and whether it was accidental or intentional.
