A man was found dead in a Red Line train car early Tuesday morning, authorities said. Police found the man—age and identity unknown so far—at 2:18 a.m. at the 63rd Street Red Line station.

The man's body showed "no signs of trauma," a police spokesperson said. He was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A non-criminal death investigation is currently underway.

When the man was found, Red Line service was suspended between 63rd and Roosevelt due to a "sick customer," according to the CTA Twitter feed. As of 5 a.m., normal Red Line service had resumed.
