MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Police spent Monday morning investigating the death of a 49-year-old man found beaten to death on the city's north side Sunday afternoon.

Two people were arrested in the case hours just after discovering the dead body.  The suspects are 46 and 48 years old.

Milwaukee officers responded Sunday about 2 p.m. to a report of a person down. The victim, identified as Curtis C. Scott, appeared to have been beaten and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say Scott's body was found near 5th and Keefe.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

MPD blocked streets in the area as they investigated the scene. Investigators are still trying to determine the motive, but they say the beating was not a random act.
