EXCLUSIVE

1018_demarius-reed_twitterCops now think wide receiver Demarius Reed -- who played for Eastern Michigan University -- was shot and killed in his apartment during a robbery gone wrong, TMZ has learned.

A rep for the Ypsilanti Police Department tells us, personal items were removed from Reed's apartment -- leading cops to believe that robbery was the motive behind the killing.

Police claim Reed -- who was found dead this morning -- suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

An autopsy is complete but the results won't be available for some time. So far, no suspects have been arrested.

The case is still under investigation as a homicide.

After Detroit collapsed there is nobody left there to jack. Crooks have dispersed in all directions of Michigan.

I am sorry the young man lost his life. However, this story does not belong on a so called celeb gossip site. It belongs on local news.

The police always jump to conclusions, and go with their hypothesis. Why would a robber need to shoot multiple times?! sounds more like someone he knew, that wanted him dead, and to make it seem like a robbery, took some stuff. Cops need to investigate the people he knows as possible suspects for his murder.
