"They made it seem like the guy was shooting, like randomly shooting. He happened to pull up at the wrong time," said Brittney Moton.

Milwaukee police say a relative of Moton got into an argument with the suspect. Then Moton arrived at the scene and the suspect shot him.

"He never was a person that was in drama or wanted controversy," Brittney  said.

Bullets from he shooting shattered not only a car window, but a family too.

"Whoever did this obviously did not know him, did not know what type of person he is. This really affected a whole lot of people, more people than I even knew," Brittney said.

Moton leaves behind three children.
