But a neighbour told the Herald at the scene this afternoon the incident is understood to involve a person who was found "unresponsive in a car".
The neighbour said it was understood they had been found in the vehicle's boot.
A vehicle has been towed from the scene.
A local resident told the Herald cones had been put out to block off Friedlanders Road from Astor Place to past the scene of an incident.
The man said it was the second time this afternoon cones had been put out, saying his flatmate tried to come home earlier but had been turned back.
He said he had just seen a police car drive past his home and could see two uniformed police officers outside a house further up the street.
There had also been a woman in dark green overalls a little earlier.
