A man living on the third floor steps into an elevator with no one on it. It makes no stops, I repeat, no stops untill it reaches the first floor. It doesn't go below the first floor or above the third. But when he gets out, HE IS DEAD. PERIOD.
Not sure where you're going with this, but in addition to Ark13's excellent question, I have a few others.
You said he lives on the third floor, but didn't say what floor he was on when he entered the elevator.
You didn't say that he got out on the first floor (or as Ark13 pointed out, how as a dead man he managed to get out).
You didn't say that no one else stepped onto the elevator at the third floor.
