Authorities are investigating the death of a man at a park behind Charles Helmers Elementary School in Santa Clarita Wednesday morning.

The body was discovered around 6:50 a.m. on a basketball court at Northbridge Park on Grandview Drive.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed a body under a white sheet with a rifle nearby.

A resident who lives nearby said she heard a loud noise, like fireworks or a gunshot, early Wednesday morning.

Classes at Charles Helmers Elementary School were not directly impacted.

“School and District officials have been in communication with local law enforcement leadership upon notification of the incident and have been assured that it is unrelated to the school,” Colleen Hawkins, Superintendent of the Saugus Union School District said in a statement. “There is major construction on the Helmers campus at this time and the park area involved is completely blocked from the school because of that construction.  School is in session and staff are monitoring student activities appropriately.”

Police have not said any suspects are being sought in connection with the case.
