Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man on a busy road in Melbourne's west.

Police say the man was found injured on Boundary Rd in Derrimut about 6am on Thursday.

Emergency crews tried to work on the man, but he died at the scene.

He was found several kilometres from another crime scene established overnight.

Police had received a call that an injured man had been spotted lying in the middle of East Derrimut Cres just after 11.15pm on Wednesday.

When officers arrived the man was gone but a number of personal items were found, and the dog squad discovered what appeared to be blood in the surrounding streets.

Heavily armed police arrived on East Derrimut Cres about 10.15am on Thursday.

A witness told AAP that officers were using a megaphone to communicate with someone inside a property.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the vicinity of East Derrimut Cres, West Court or Derrimut Dr, or who has dashcam footage of those areas, has been urged to come forward.
