Victim of Windsor homicide may have been hit by vehicle, say police

Windsor police are still looking for a suspect after a homicide in the east end of the city.

Windsor police launched a homicide investigation after a man was found injured on a sidewalk and later died in hospital from his injuries.

Officers were dispatched to the 2900 block of Tecumseh Road East about 3:55 a.m. Saturday and found a man suffering from severe injuries. He was transported to hospital, where he died. 

Officers with the major crimes unit and and forensic identification unit were on the scene Saturday morning. 

Luc Cote lives on Alexis Road, just a few houses down from where the incident took place. Cote says the neighbourhood is pretty quiet but the bar on the corner of the street causes some trouble.

"Sometimes I just sit on my porch and I see all kinds of interesting stuff happening," he said. "It's a bad influence for the neighbourhood." 

Tecumseh Road East between Alexis Road and Drouillard Road was closed for several hours. It reopened about 3 p.m. Saturday.

Police say the investigation is in its early stages.
