The man had seven prior arrests, mostly for drugs, police say.

Residents say the suspects first knocked on a door on the third floor and an 81-year-old woman answered. She was thrown to the ground. The suspects apologized after realizing they had the wrong apartment, and then allegedly went upstairs and killed the man.

Police say the two suspects pistol-whipped a 19-year-old who was in the stairwell as they were leaving and took his wallet.

Residents say that there are no security cameras in the building.
