A 26-year-old man died Friday evening after apparently hanging himself in his family's garage.

Officers responded to a call in the 400 block of Yupon Avenue just after 7 p.m., said Sgt. Jef Strauss with the Victoria Police Department. A woman reported she found her son hanging behind the home.

She last saw her son alive about 6:30 p.m.

Medics treated the man on scene then transported him to a Victoria hospital, Strauss said. He died despite efforts to resuscitate him.

Strauss said the death is being investigated as a suicide.
