Anchorage police say they are investigating the death of a male who died at a local hospital Tuesday night.

Police are declining to release any additional information about the death, including the name, age and hometown of the deceased, pending an ongoing investigation, said spokeswoman Jennifer Castro.

The male -- it was not immediately clear if the deceased is an adult -- arrived at the hospital early Saturday morning and died three and a half days later, Castro said in a statement.

She would not say where and when exactly police believe the injury or apparent cause of death occurred. She would not discuss the nature of any apparent injuries.

Police are investigating "to determine if there are suspicious circumstances related to the death," Castro said.
