The man, whose identity was not released,  Victor Martinez, 26, was shot in the 8200 block of Bauman about 4 a.m. this morning, HPD said.

Police were called to the scene and discovered the man dead lying in front of an apartment door, but it is not known whether he lived there. No other injuries were reported.

"When Mr. Martinez left his second-story apartment to investigate suspicious activity he saw in the parking lot, two unknown Hispanic males ran up the stairwell and shot him one time," HPD said.

Police have no suspects at this time.
