A 55-year-old man was found dead in a gazebo on the town green in Enfield early Wednesday morning and police said they are investigating his death as an apparent homicide.

A pedestrian who was walking near the town green around 2:37 a.m. saw a man's body in the gazebo and officers determined the man died in an apparent homicide, police said. 

Police have identified the victim as Christopher Kennedy.

An investigation is underway.

Enfield Police Chief Alaric Fox said investigators are pursuing several leads and they had not made an arrest as of 1:30 p.m.

Police have roped off the area around the gazebo and the upper parking lot is inaccessible.

Connecticut state police are also at the scene and Massachusetts state police were at the scene earlier because they were the closest law enforcement with a K9 at the time, police said.

Suffield police are assisting Enfield police in securing an area, but would not say whether it was connected to the homicide.

Crews from major crimes and K9 officers are also at the scene.
