The victim’s family told WREG that he leaves behind several children.

“He had four kids that I know. He was in his early 30s so, for him to be taken away– his youngest child is three or four, and she is like a daddy’s girl,” said the victim’s sister-in-law.

She also does not know why anyone would want to harm him.

“He didn’t do [anything] to [anybody] to deserve the stuff that he got. He didn’t deserve to be killed, the way he got killed,” she added.

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.
