Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Police in New York City are questioning a suspect after discovering a dead body stuffed into a large, black plastic storage container.

Police say they made the discovery at a home in the Flatlands neighborhood of Brooklyn at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

They say they went there after a Brooklyn nightclub owner called police to report that a bouncer at the club admitted to the owner that he'd killed a man.

Police say they arrived at the red-brick, two-family home and found the body, but didn't disclose whether it showed any signs of trauma..

Emergency workers pronounced the unidentified man dead at the scene. Police are still investigating.

The home's owner couldn't immediately be reached.
