"He was coming in preparing his truck and that's why the hood is up on the truck. And either he confronted someone or he confronted someone," Houston Police Detective Shaun Sylvester said.

Police said it doesn't appear to be a robbery.

A friend of the victim told ABC13 that the man parked his rig at the truck yard routinely and has never had any issues in the past.
