At 11:30 p.m., police responded to a home in the 4600 block of Miller Street after the man's roommate discovered him in the backyard.
The victim shared the house with two other people. All are cooperating with police.
The name of the victim was not released, pending family notification.
Police are interviewing a potential suspect.
In 2009, the property was identified as a "Chop Shop" by law enforcement officials. Approximately 12 stolen vehicles were recovered and several arrests were made in connection to that case.
Police stress that the current residents were not involved in the previous case.
