CHICAGO — Police are investigating the death of a man found in a home in North Lawndale Sunday morning.

The man was found unresponsive in a home in the 2100 block of South Harding Avenue, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman. He said a death investigation is ongoing.

Relatives on the scene said the man was 53-year-old Samuel Brown, one of 13 siblings. Sunday afternoon, brothers and sisters gathered and said they were waiting for answers on how "Uncle Sammy" had died.
