Family tells TMJ4 News that 18-year-old Amarion Brown was found dead - killed in the home he shared with his mother.

"If you are not safe at home, where can you be safe," said Renee Rose Cleary, 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.

She said Brown graduated last year from Madison High School, and enjoyed playing basketball and video games.

Cleary said her nephew was nine days away from celebrating his birthday. Now the family is planning his funeral.

"The guns need to be put down, they need to be put down, for real this is way too much," Cleary said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Brown Deer Police at (414) 371-2900.
