Three black males broke into a home in the 400 block of Truman, ransacked the place and assaulted the occupants Saturday afternoon, Houston police say.
One of those occupants, Reginald Keith Haynes, 48, died from "lacerations and possible internal injuries," police say.
Police received a call about an assault at the address, but the perpetrators were gone by the time they arrived. Witnesses described the suspects only as "three black males," police say.
The suspects got away with what is described as "several items" in a white or cream-colored Chevrolet Silverado extended-cab pickup truck with tinted windows.
Haynes was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
