DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. -- Police said they were conducting a death investigation in unincorporated Downers Grove, Ill., Tuesday evening.

The DuPage County Sheriff's Office said they were conducting the investigation in the 2100 block of 63rd Street. Officials said detectives are waiting for a search warrant to be approved so they can gather evidence.

Around 1 p.m. on Tuesday, neighbors said they saw a man run into traffic. They said it was a frightening scene. At one point they said he was standing in the middle of the street looking up at the sky.

Neighbors said the couple that lived in the home kept to themselves. They only moved in about a year and a half ago. Many are speculating this was an incident of domestic violence, but police did not confirm.

"And he walked out in the street and then he’s jumping in front of cars, he’s actually jumping in front of cars and if they stop he actually runs around and tries their door, always on the drivers side. And then all of a sudden he stands like a statue and he’s looking up like he’s going to heaven or something," a neighbor said.

Around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, westbound 63rd Street was closed to all traffic between Woodward Avenue and Belmont Road.

There were several police cars and evidence vans at the scene but little information other than it's a death investigation.
