A man's body was found this morning in San Francisco Bay off the coast of Alameda, Alameda County sheriff's officials said.

Sheriff's deputies went out to the body at about 8:45 a.m. at the end of Broadway, near La Jolla. 

Alameda Police Lt. Matt McMullen said officers are investigating the man's death as suspicious until the coroner determines the cause. 

"It's absolutely suspicious," McMullen said. 

The investigation could become a homicide depending on what the coroner finds. 

The coroner says the man had identification on him and they are working to notify next of kin.
