Police are investigating the suspected homicide of a 25-year-old-man in Midland.

The man's body was discovered about 8am in the second of three units at a complex on Cope Street.

Major Crime Squad and Midland police have appealed for anyone in the vicinity of Cope Street and Morrison Road this morning to come forward with information.

Detective Sen-Sgt Greg McDonald would not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding the man's death or the cause.

"At this stage we are making an appeal for information from anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the vicinity of Cope Street and Morrison Road overnight," he said.

It is understood the dead man may have been wheelchair-bound.

Forensics officers were seen combing a vacant block next to where the body was found.

Ricky Humphries, 17, who lives near the crime scene said he heard men yelling in the street about 2am.

"They were shouts of anger," he said.

"It sounded like a group of people. I also heard banging and screeching, the sound made when someone is jumping a fence.

"It was scary."

Ricky said the noises woke him but he didn't go outside to investigate. He was unsure what direction the shouting had come from.

Up to 20 forensics officers and detectives were at Cope Street this morning.
