Greg Fisk, the mayor of Juneau, Alaska, has been found dead at a home in the city, the police department said on Monday.
Police responding to an emergency call found Fisk, 70, and pronounced him dead at the home in the state capital, Juneau’s police department said in a statement.
An investigation is underway.
Police said a man, who they did not identify, made an emergency call on Monday afternoon to report a deceased person inside a residence.
Juneau radio broadcaster KTOO reported that Fisk, who was elected to his seat last month, was found dead at his own home.
KTOO said Laurie Sica, a clerk with the City and Borough of Juneau, would issue a media release on Tuesday.
