Man dead in possible hazmat situation
A man was found dead at a home where there was a possible hazardous materials incident in the city’s Outer Richmond neighborhood this morning, according to police and fire officials.
Emergency personnel responded around 8:50 a.m. to an apartment building near 43rd Avenue and Clement Street for a well-being check.
After a building manager let officers into the building, emergency crews were concerned about possible hazardous materials that had been exposed, police spokeswoman Sgt. Danielle Newman said.
The apartment was evacuated and the building is being aired out before police and the medical examiner can continue their investigations, Newman said.
