OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police are investigating a homicide after finding a man's body at a carwash Tuesday afternoon.

Police say someone at a nearby convenience store saw someone they thought may be hurt at the carwash near N.E. 36th and Kelley Avenue.

When police arrived, they found a deceased African American man inside one of the bays at the carwash.

A man told police his son had been robbed at the car wash around the same time the body was discovered. The man was able to give police a suspect description of two men who robbed his son.

He then told News 9 the man found dead in the carwash bay matched the description of one of the armed robbers. Police will not confirm whether this information is true.

Police are not saying how the man died and his identity has not been released.
