PPD: No foul play in death outside Starbucks

Man dies in car at Owens Drive coffee house

Pleasanton police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a man inside a car parked at the new Starbucks on Owens Drive on Saturday morning.

The situation unfolded just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday when Pleasanton police and Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department personnel were dispatched to the coffee house at 5900 Owens Drive on a report of a man possibly experiencing a medical emergency in his car, according to Sgt. Steven Ayers.

First responders found the 55-year-old man dead in the driver’s seat, according to Ayers. The man’s name has not yet been released.

The police department’s criminal investigations unit soon arrived and determined there were no suspicious circumstances and no signs of foul play, Ayers said. The Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau then responded to the scene, took custody of the body and notified the man’s family.

Does anyone know the identity of the Pleasanton man that list his life in this reported incident. It would be nice if those that know him could pay tribute. Thanks!
