"There's reports that there may have been an altercation in the apartment of some sort and then a short time thereafter, a male was found outside and was pronounced on the scene deceased."

Long adds while it's not clear how the body ended up on the ground, police haven't ruled out the possibility the victim fell from a balcony in the building after the altercation.
