TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - The family of 42-year-old Henry Raymond Enoch is speaking out after the bicyclist was shot in killed during a road rage incident in Taylor on Wednesday.
"There is no reason to shoot my brother, he was my only brother," says Donna Enoch Owens, sister of Raymond.
"I know that this particular instance was a very ugly instance and it may not have been his best moment, but he was a good person," says Raymond's niece, Erica Enoch.
Police say 46-year-old Edward Myers was traveling northbound in his pick-up truck on Telegraph. As he turned eastbound onto Northline, Enoch ignored a “Do Not Cross” signal and drove into him on his bike.
Witnesses say Enoch got up from the ground and started punching Myers through his open window. It ended when Myers pulled out a gun and shot the bicyclist in the chest.
Action News has learned the gun was in the center console and it was a .357 pistol.
"He grieves over having to take a life, but in the end I think he's going to be able to live with that because it was either him or the other man," says James Makowski, attorney for Myers.
