BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham police are investigating the death of a pizza delivery man in what they say appears to be a homicide.

Najeh Musaid, 63, was found dead Sunday evening in a hallway at the District at the Summit apartments, authorities said.

No one heard gunfire, and no shell casings were found at the scene, Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards said. Musaid’s car was still running when police arrived around 7 p.m., and a warming bag holding pizzas was near the victim, Al.com reported (http://bit.ly/1wBAliI ).

Authorities are investigating robbery as the possible motive. He suffered a fatal head wound, but police said they don’t know if he was shot, hit or possibly stabbed.

Musaid lived in Shelby County with his wife, the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office said.

The victim’s co-workers, managers and the owner of the Cahaba Heights’ Domino’s gathered at the crime scene, shaken by the loss of Musaid.

“He was the nicest the person,’” said Casey Leroy, his manager. “My whole staff is shaken. He was not a person who deserved this.”

Musaid was delivering an order to an apartment which turned out to be vacant, authorities said. The person who ordered the pizza called a couple of times to change where the pizza was to be delivered.

“It’s nonsense, crazy, ridiculous,” Leroy said. “He’s worked for us for 15 years.”
