    Gunfire rang out around 3:30 a.m. inside the complex at 1000 East Montgomery Avenue. Police and medics found the man on the floor of a second-story hallway dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

    "We believe that the shooter and the victim did know each other," police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
