DAVIE, Fla. -

A 26-year-old man was shot and killed at his Davie apartment early Wednesday morning.

Police responded to a call at 10700 Cameron Court shortly before 1:30 a.m.

That's where they found Brian Creighton dead in the doorway of his third-floor apartment.

"When he opened the door, he was greeted obviously by something that was not friendly to him and was shot through the door," said Capt. Dale Engle of the Davie Police Department. "There was actually a bullet hole through the door."

Neighbors said they heard a loud noise and called police.

"It is really kind of disturbing," said Peter Fliss, who lives at the apartment complex. " I mean I have lived here since 2010 about, I came down from Minnesota and it has been pretty quiet since I moved down, so it is a little unsettling."

The front door was unhinged, wrapped up and taken away to dust for fingerprints. The door had at least one bullet through it.

Local 10 was there as police removed the body.
