YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - The off-campus apartment complex where Eastern Michigan University football player Demarius Reed was found fatally shot is boosting security.
University Green apartments began increasing security personnel and the frequency of patrols Friday, after the 20-year-old from Chicago was found shot multiple times in what police say may be a robbery.
On Monday night, however, police say an Eastern Michigan student was pistol-whipped during a break-in at the Ypsilanti apartment complex.
Coseo Properties Inc. acquired University Green about two weeks ago, and since then property management company Paragon Properties has handled the apartment complex. Paragon says it's considering adding security cameras and emergency telephones to the premises after Reed's death.
University Green spokeswoman Jaclyn Robinson says Paragon plans to work with the university on security.
