RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) – A death investigation is underway in Racine.

Police say the department is investigating a death that happened near at a duplex near Sheffield and Bay Drives around 12:49 a.m. on Thursday.

Authorities say the scene is still active and ask the public to avoid the area.

A next door neighbor tells CBS 58 he heard a woman screaming and came outside to see squad cars pulling up.

"I'm amazed because I wouldn't think something like that would happen in Racine and especially next door to me," Bill Savage said. "Obviously, it just goes to show you don't know the people around the in the neighborhood that well."

An investigator with the Wisconsin State patrol says they were using a scanning device throughout the duplex.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
