KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A man was found dead in his Kenosha apartment and police believe it could be a homicide.

Kenosha Police Officers were conducting a welfare check at a second-floor apartment in the Wood Creek Apartment Complex at N. 15th Street and 39th Avenue Friday morning. When inside, officers discovered the body of an adult male who lived in the apartment. The death is being investigated as a homicide. 

People who live in the apartment complex are shocked to find out there's a homicide investigation in their building because they say it's typically a safe area. 

"It's definitely concerning because it's somewhere where I live, somewhere I should feel safe and comfortable," resident Megan Maurer said. "To hear that really surprised me, took me back and made me question everything that's going on and living here." 

Police haven't released the man's name, the cause of death or motive yet. 

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Kenosha Police Department Detective Bureau at 262-605-5203 or call the Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers anonymously at 262-656-7333.
