Police in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida have refused to explain why an officer shot and killed a black man who was reportedly having car trouble over the weekend.

According to WPTV, Palm Beach Gardens Police have only said that one of its officers had shot a man at around 3:15 a.m. on a southbound exit ramp of I-95.

Family members confirmed that the man was 31-year-old Corey Jones, who is known in the community for playing drums in several local bands and churches.

“We don’t know where his body is, we don’t know what’s going on, all we know is someone knocked on the door and said this has happened,” WPEC was told by Ava Wright, a cousin of Jones.

Wright explained that Jones had called an older brother to report car problems while on the way home from a gig on Sunday morning. Jones reportedly said that he would need a ride home after calling a tow truck.

“The family needs some comfort,” Wright insisted. “He never got into any trouble; he was a very good kid.”
