Family of Terrence Kellom, man killed by ICE agent, says incident was caught on video

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The family of Terrence Kellom is speaking out again, only to 7 Action News. They say they have evidence that will set the record straight. 

Kellom was shot and killed by a Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer as he served a felony warrant on Monday.

The family says there is surveillance video of the entire incident. Kellom's father said police took the surveillance video, along with three cell phones and a computer.

Two cameras were located inside the house along with one more outside. The family strongly believes the camera at the top of the stairs will show that Kellom, 20, did not have a hammer like authorities said he did.

Kellom was wanted on armed robbery charges, and agents had a warrant to arrest him. They claim he threatened them with a hammer, but his father claims there wasn't even a hammer inside the house.

Kari Mitchell, the Kellom family attorney also said the officers entered the home illegally, and released this statement.

"They had an arrest warrant, but not a search warrant until 4:30 p.m. Mr. Kellom didn't give consent to enter. An arrest warrant does not give them authority to enter."

Police do say Kellom did allow them into the home and say the video most likely will not be released until the investigation will be complete.
