DETROIT (WJBK) - A 38-year-old man was found dead outside a gas station near Seven Mile Road and Pierson Street on Detroit's west side.

A witness had told FOX 2 a group of 10 - 14 people beat up Eric Miles, but after a thorough investigation Detroit Police have concluded and confirmed the fight was between the victim and one suspect.

The fight is believed to have started after a verbal argument took place between the two men.

Miles sustained fatal injuries.

His family has set up a memorial fund at Peace Chapel Funeral Home on Seven Mile Road in Detroit.
