HOUSTON -

A body was found inside a northwest Houston pickup truck Wednesday.

Investigators said a man called 911 to report a gunshot victim was found in the 5300 block of Lost Forest at 7:20 a.m. Officials said the caller went to the truck, opened the door and found the man.

"I banged on the door, no response. I opened the door and (saw) he had a gunshot, dead," witness Roland Mendiola said.

Emergency crews confirmed the man died at the scene.

Mendiola lives in the townhomes next to where the truck was parked and said it was there since at least 5 a.m. when he went to leave for work. He became suspicious when the truck was turned on. Neighbors said they did not hear any gunshots.

The victim was identified as 20-year-old Richard Corbello Jr.

Corbello lived nearly 20 miles away from the crime scene, police said.
