KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

Killeen Police are investigating a murder at Morgan Manor Apartments in Killeen. The man who was murdered has been identified as 38-year-old Rocky Wayne Marsh.

Killeen Police said officers received a call about a robbery around 8 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Upon arrival, officers said they found a man lying on the ground – unconscious and not breathing.

"I'm not surprised. You hear sirens and cops around here all the time, so it's just kinda how it is around here," Spc. Brandon Bump, a resident at Morgan Manor Apartments, said. 

Officers began to preform CPR until paramedics arrived. Marsh was transported to Seton Medical Center in Harker Heights.

Officers said initial investigation showed that the victim was in the parking lot when three or four individuals approached him. During the verbal altercation, the suspects robbed Marsh and brutally attacked him.

The suspects left in an unidentified vehicle.

"I don't know any of my neighbors. I don't really go outside around here. It's just something that's cheap to live in," Spc. Bump added.

Bump isn't the only one who's concerned. Other residents were hesitant to open their doors and refused to come outside to speak with News Channel 25.
But, Killeen Police urge anyone with information to speak up.

"It's just a matter of being alert and if you see something, say something," Ofelia Miramontez of the Killeen Police Department said. 

Marsh died from his injuries at the hospital around 10 p.m. An autopsy has been ordered to be performed by the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas.

"We hope that there are people out there who can identify these subjects or the vehicle they drove off in, so we can put it out and catch these individuals who took the life of another," Miramontez added. 

Detectives are still working on obtaining information on the description of the suspects and the vehicle. A 17-year-old was arrested in connection with the murder.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division Homicide Unit are asking anyone who has information about this homicide to contact Crime Stoppers at 254-526-TIPS (8477) or go online anonymously at www.bellcountycrimestoppers.com.
