Investigators learned the gathering began at an Airbnb outside the city limits, but the unauthorized party was shut down by the owner.
According to witnesses, the group announced that the party was being relocated to the apartments on social media.
“Due to the chaos of everyone fleeing as officers attempted to provide assistance, only some of the witnesses could be interviewed at the scene,” police said.
Police released body camera footage of the chaos that erupted moments after they arrived at the scene.
Police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying who killed Green.
