AUSTIN -- Police say a man fleeing officers has died after being hit by a car.

Officers say it happened on Airport Boulevard around 8 p.m. on Sunday. Around 7 p.m. officers responded to the Mason Manor Apartments on Gunter Street to investigate five males who were on the property.

After speaking with the men, police say they let four of them go.

They were questioning the fifth man and put him in handcuffs but when police were about to frisk him, he ran into the street.

Paramedics rushed the man to UMC Brackenridge where he died.

He has not yet been identified.
