Gregory C. Handley, 66, of 2227 Dixie Highway, Apt. 3, was the man police found to be dead, police said.
Because police believed an effort to arrest Harris could become a dangerous situation, the police SWAT team went to the apartment complex in the 2200 block of Dixie Highway.
Before knocking on the door of the apartment where police believed Harris was, officers knocked on doors of other apartments at the complex to get people out of those dwellings. At one of those apartments, people inside told them there was a man inside who wasn’t moving.
