Police first responded to the home at 62nd and Goodrich Lane just before 11 a.m. Thursday.

"If you are not safe at home, where can you be safe?" asked Renee Rose Cleary, Amarion Brown's great-aunt.

She said she's still trying to wrap her head around what happened.

"He was a good kid and it's like they just came and took his life from him, and he just started a life," Cleary said.
