Officers did not administer life-saving measures upon arrival because the unresponsive man was determined to be deceased, Maui police said.

A preliminary investigation showed no signs of foul play and the victim’s identity is being withheld until next of kin have been notified.

Officials say an autopsy has been scheduled and the investigation is ongoing.
