Bloomington police officers responded to the call along 98th Street East near Second Avenue around 5 a.m. and found Greeman lying in the street. Greeman was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, where he died around 5:45 a.m. of multiple blunt force injuries, the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said Monday.
