SALISBURY State police and the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation said yesterday that a Salisbury man died after he was bound with duct tape during a home invasion.

Police said three masked men forced their way into a home in the 600 block of Dennis St. in Salisbury just before midnight Friday. Police said the men bound Brookes Harmon, 27, who was visiting the home, with duct tape and ordered everyone else into a back room. Witnesses told police the men did not display weapons but after they left 20 minutes later, Harmon was found unresponsive, and they called 911. He was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Police said his body has been taken to Baltimore for an autopsy.
