Deputy coroner Lonnie Miles says Hicks was pronounced dead at the scene.

Family members say Hicks stayed out of trouble and was a good person.

“That’s all I want to know,” Hicks’ cousin Zequils Martin said. “What was the reason to do it? You tore up our family. You took somebody from us. He didn’t bother anybody at all.”

Miles says investigators have a person of interest in custody. Investigators are still working to find out what led to the shooting.
