UPDATE: An older man has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at about 8:30 a.m., said Lt. Al Days, of the Racine Police Department.

Foul play is not suspected. No other information is available at this time.

Original story: Racine Police were on scene Wednesday morning for what several readers have told us appeared to be a body in the grass parkway in front of the Kimissis Greek Orthodox Church, 1335 S. Green Bay Rd.

Other readers told us the body was covered up.

Racine Police have not confirmed what readers have reported, but we did see a heavy police presence at about 9 a.m. and Wright Avenue was blocked off. By about 10:30 a.m. all of the officers had left the scene.

We’ve got phone calls into officials at the Greek Orthodox Church and the Racine Police Department. We’ll update the story when we get more information.
