Emeryville Police Department homicide investigators today are trying to piece together the events that led to the shooting death of a 33-year-old Emeryville man outside his home early this morning. 

A police department spokesman says Hamilton Billy Greene was found laying in a pool of blood in front of 4369 Adeline St. at approximately 12:37 a.m. Monday. Police say Greene died of an apparent gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Through interviews with other residents of Greene's Emeryville neighborhood, officers learned that the victim went with neighbors to see a movie in Berkeley that ended at 11:30 p.m. Sunday. The neighbor said the victim drove his own car, returned home and was shot as he was entering his apartment. Some neighbors reported hearing a couple gunshots at around 12:30 a.m. 

Anyone with any information surrounding the circumstances of the death is urged to contact the Emeryville police detectives at 596-3774.
