Greer, a Comcast employee, suffered multiple fractures and died during surgery six hours later, police said during Wednesday’s news conference.
Greer’s apartment was ransacked, “making it appear as though the suspects were looking for something in particular,” according to the police report. Police are uncertain if anything of real value was stolen and are investigating whether the suspects targeted the apartment by mistake.
Neighbors said “suspicious people” had been seen coming and going to an apartment on a different floor, the report said.
“There is no indication that Mr. Greer was doing anything other than minding his own business,” Lee said.
Police found the container of coins near a fence, which a witness said the fleeing men escaped over.
There is a $25,000 reward being offered for information to solve the case.
