Man with ‘significant injuries’ dies on street

A CAIRNS street is in lockdown this morning after police set up a crime scene following reports of a body on the road.

A resident of the street told the Cairns Post "there was heaps of noise, screaming and yelling and then the cop cars arrived at 4am".

Officers were called to a Hunt Street residence in the suburb of Manunda about 4am where they located a man, who had significant injuries, lying on the roadway.

"Police commenced CPR and continued until the arrival of ambulance officers," a Queensland police statement said.

"The man, aged in his early 20s, was declared deceased at the scene.

"A crime scene has been declared with detectives, uniformed officers, Scenes of Crime and Scientific Officers currently in Hunt Street."
