WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities say they have pulled the body of a man out of the Potomac River near southwest Washington.

Battalion Fire Chief Brian Lee tells The Washington Post that D.C. fire boats were called to an area near Hains Point and the 14th Street bridge, where they found the body about 5 p.m. Tuesday. The body has not been identified.

A police spokesman, Officer Paul Metcalf, says homicide detectives were called to investigate. Officials did not say whether there were any signs of trauma to the body.
