Class won't be held at an elementary school in unincorporated San Bernardino County after the custodian found a dead body on campus. Students are being shuttled to a nearby campus that investigators are not treating as a crime scene.

The custodian at Muscoy Elementary School found the dead man around 7 am this morning just outside the front door of the school near the flag pole. Sheriff's deputies in San Bernardino County are investigating the man's death as a homicide, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise.

The victim's name, age and way he died hasn't been released, but investigators say he was wearing a black shirt and pants and white tennis shoes.
