The victim, who appeared to be homeless based on his unkempt appearance, was sleeping in a bus stop shelter at the corner of Cullen and Holman on the University of Houston campus.  A student catching the bus to go to work found the victim lying on the bench bleeding from his head and then called 911.  Paramedics arrived and pronounced the man dead. 

Although the motive in the incident is unknown at this time, robbery does not appear to have been involved.
