(Fox News) – A man’s body was found Thursday morning in a secluded area in the Toronto suburb of Vaughan, and authorities say it is “suspicious in nature.”

Police were called at 9:30 a.m. to the area of Jonagold Trail and Mercury Boulevard after receiving reports of a “suspicious death,” Peel Regional Police said.

Police say they have a suspect in custody, but they have not identified the man.

“Officers located a man’s body in a secluded location,” police said in a news release. “The death is suspicious in nature and police and paramedics responded to the scene to determine the cause of death. The man is believed to be in his early 20s.”

Witnesses say they heard one shot shortly before being notified by police.

“[The body] appeared to be in a secluded place for an extended period of time,” police said.

Police set up a large perimeter around the area, including a well-used bike path.

Chief Jennifer Evans of the Peel Regional Police said at a press conference that police believe the man was killed in the area where he was found, but they can’t confirm how he died.
