HOUSTON (CBS Houston) On Thursday, Houston police homicide investigators released surveillance video and composite sketches of suspects wanted for questioning in the fatal beating and burning of a man.

The victim was found lying in the middle of the street, in a neighborhood located in west Houston early Sunday morning. He was later pronounced dead Memorial Hermann Hospital on Tuesday.

HPD Homicide Division officials offered additional details of the case: “Three males were seen beating the victim at the exit gate of the apartment complex at the above address. They then set him on fire before fleeing the scene. Further investigation has determined a group of three black males was seen walking in the area of Witte Road and Long Point Drive. One of the males was seen on surveillance video carrying a red gallon-sized gas can. Two of the suspects are described as between 17 and 23 years of age, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, with dark complexions and skinny builds. One was wearing a black or dark hoodie and the other a gray or light hoodie. The third suspect is much shorter, about 5 feet 2 inches tall, has a light complexion, believed to be in his teens or early 20s, with a medium build. He was wearing a gray or light “hoodie”.

As Houston police piece together details of their investigation of this case, they are asking anyone with information about the sketched men or the case to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

HPD also posted surveillance video of the suspects that can be viewed by clicking here.
