A body was seen being taken into an ambulance moments ago off of Jasper Ave.
Police has informed bystanders that who is believed to be a homeless man, was found passed away in the river valley adjacent to the ultimate east end of Jasper Avenue in downtown Edmonton moments ago.
Police inform that there is no suspicious activity believed to be the cause of the man’s death.
The right lane of Jasper Avenue heading east was seen completely blocked off by numerous emergency vehicles.
Roughly 30 to 40 bystanders were seen across the street of the incident, wondering what all of the commotion was about.

As to be expected, no name has been released at this time. For now, all we can do is wait for an official media release from our Edmonton Police Service.
This article will be updated when this information becomes available.
To the man’s family, our deepest condolences to you and yours. May he rest in peace.
Take care out there tonight.
