A man was found dead on a Galveston beach late Friday afternoon, police said.

The man's body was found near the bottom of a set of stairs on the seawall at 77th Street, Galveston Police Department spokesman Sgt. Xavier Hancock said.

Emergency responders were called to a report of a unconscious man on the west end of the seawall about 5 p.m., Hancock said. The man was declared dead at the scene.

Police did not release any identifying information about the man on Friday.

The man's death was under investigation. The death is not connected to the Lone Star Rally, Hancock said.

If the death is still under investigation, how can it be said is is not related to the rally?
