San Diego Lt. Ernie Herbert tells U-T San Diego ( http://bit.ly/Vl7QSL) the victim's body was found early Wednesday in an apartment complex parking lot.
He says apartment residents tell investigators the man had been drinking with two others at the complex around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Herbert says witnesses reported the victim and one of the men got into a fight.
Herbert says detectives are investigating to determine if the fight contributed to the man's death.
An autopsy is scheduled. The victim's name has not been released.
