But the irate family members of the unidentified man said on the scene that he had nothing to do with death and said the police were doing a search for the house at 4:50 am I'm in a scene that upset this neighborhood in the 3200 block of Evergreen.

"I slept and when they came in. All I heard was a big boom and then they were killed at home and fired," said McKayla Coleman, 19, who was upstairs. He said the person killed by the police was his sister's uncle, who was on the couch downstairs at home.

"When we got off, it was on the floor and they did not want to tell us what was wrong with him"

Last Thursday, the investigators said, a suspect entered a Lyndon home near where the Man was killed and opened fire before fleeing. The 5-year-old boy and his mother were killed. The girl was admitted to the hospital, where she died of her injuries. His mother was hospitalized in serious condition at the beginning of Friday.

Several other people inside the house during filming were not injured, police said.
