Man SURVIVES After 3 Men Set Him on Fire

[Houston Police Department] said neighbors awoke to screams from the victim at approximately 4:15 a.m. The man, who has not been identified, was tearing at his shirt to remove it, but when he did his body was still on fire.

…[A neighbor] grabbed a fire extinguisher from her apartment but said it didn’t work. Other neighbors removed their own clothing and used it to smother the flames as the man rolled into a roadside ditch at the front entrance to the apartment complex. Witnesses said he was burned all over his body.

Police said they believe there was some sort of argument that preceded the attack. The three suspects, of whom police were not able to give a specific description, raced away as neighbors rushed in to help the critically injured man.

…As of early Sunday afternoon HPD had not released the identity of the victim or specific descriptions of his attackers.
