Police investigating the death of a 20-year-old man overnight say he may have been involved in a fight before he died.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Levy said police were called to the man's Wainuiomata house at 7am today, after another person at the house called an ambulance.

It was too early to say if the man's death was suspicious, but Mr Levy said police were investigating whether the man had head injuries after a fight.

Police believed the man was drinking before his death.
