NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Police said they are investigating the death of a man inside of a home Wednesday as a homicide.

Officers were in the 1500 block of W. Little Creek Rd. after emergency dispatchers received a call about an unconscious man around 7:30 p.m. When police arrived at the home, they found 46-year-old Clifford Duty III inside it. The home has three apartments inside. One woman, who lives above Duty, said she is shocked and saddened. She said he loves his young son immensely.

Saturday was the last time she saw her neighbor alive. "And he was playing with his kid on the trampoline that he just got him," she told 13NewsNow.

Although detectives are treating the case as a homicide, the cause of Duty's death has to be determined by the medical examiner's office.

Police ask anyone with information about the situation to contact them at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
