HOUSTON – Homicide detectives are searching for clues after surveillance video showed a man being beaten to death Saturday morning in northwest Houston, police said.

According to the Houston Police Department, officers were called out around 7 a.m. after the body was found in a ditch near Afton and Todd streets.

Homicide detectives were able to look at surveillance video from a business to see what transpired.

The footage showed a dark-colored vehicle approach the victim. At least one person got out and chased the victim down and started assaulting him.

The car then picked up the suspect or suspects a little further down the road, police said.

Police said the video was dark so it was difficult to make out much.

The victim died from blunt force trauma, police said.
