(ABC 6 News) – Rochester police responded Tuesday afternoon to the discovery of a deceased man inside a shed at Bethel Lutheran Church.

The call came in at about 3:26 p.m., public information officer Amanda Grayson said.

The 59-year-old man had gone out to the maintenance shed a few hours earlier, Grayson said, to do some work.

Church staff found the man deceased around 3:36.

The Rochester Fire Department measured high levels of carbon monoxide in the shed, and the gas tank on an engine was out of gas, Grayson said.
