HOUSTON - Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Tuesday in southeast Houston.

Houston police said residents of an apartment complex at 8405 Broadway St. reported hearing gunshots about 3:30 a.m. 

Someone leaving for work several hours later found the man dead near a truck in the complex's parking lot, police said.

Investigators said they believe the incident started in the courtyard of the apartment complex.

"We know that this incident happened somewhere inside the apartment complex," said Houston police Capt. William McPherson. "It did not occur in the parking lot, but as happens sometimes when someone gets injured, they tend to run away from the danger. That's what appears to have happened here."

Police said the victim appears to have been in his 20s,  but his identity was not immediately released.
