PORTLAND, Maine - Portland police are investigating the apparent homicide of a 35-year-old man who was found dead in a car in the city's West End Monday afternoon. 

Assistant Portland Police Chief Vern Malloch says officers responded to a 9-1-1 call.  He says the victim's identity is not being released pending notification of next of kin.

"We are working with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the Maine Attorney General's Office in that investigation," Malloch says.

Malloch says no arrests have been made and no one else was injured.  He says authorities are asking anyone who might have been in the area at around 2 p.m. Monday, or who might have information about this situation, to call Portland police.
