As police officers began the investigation, multiple people were seen grieving the man’s death.

“He was good,” one woman said. “He was just the average kid, you know. He was nice and he took care -- he did what he had to do for his family. He was just so funny and would give you anything.”

It’s unclear if police have anyone in custody, but one person was placed in the back of a police car.

The investigation is ongoing.
