The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man was found dead in a Brandon home Thursday night.

Detectives say there are three or four suspects in the death of the victim, which does not appear to be random. They say the man, whose identity has not been released, died of blunt force trauma.

Deputies responded to the home at 1625 Bent Pine Way in Brandon around 9 p.m. Thursday after a caller stated a man became involved in an altercation with multiple suspects in the home. When deputies entered, the man was dead and a woman inside the home was unharmed. The suspects had fled the scene.

Detectives remain on scene Friday morning investigating. They say a possible motive has been established, but did not release more information.

There is no description of the alleged suspects.
