A 63-year-old pizza delivery man was found dead in a hallway at the District at the Summit apartments near the Summit shopping center in Birmingham Sunday evening in what police say appears to be a homicide.
Authorities are investigating robbery as the possible motive and believe he might have been set up. Domino’s workers said the victim was called to deliver an order to an apartment there that turned out to be vacant.
The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office late tonight identified the victim as Najeh Masaeid. He lived in Shelby County with his wife.
A resident called police at 6:45 p.m. after discovering the Domino’s driver on the ground in the breezeway of building No. 9. The Jordanian man suffered a fatal head wound, but police said they don’t know if he was shot, hit or possibly stabbed.
