The customer knocked on the window and when the man didn’t respond, they called first responders.

The Fire Department said the man was dead in the vehicle.

Police say a medical condition most likely happened Friday afternoon.

“We conducted on investigation, didn’t note anything suspicious, it appears it was possibly a medical condition…. family notification is going on right now,” said Sgt. Collin Gnoinsky, with the Fargo Police Department.
