The 38-year-old was killed by Detroit police who returned fire
after four officers were shot Sunday afternoon.
Moore's grandmother, aunt and sister say they are devastated and
shocked by what happened inside the Northwest District.
The suspect's grandmother, Paula Hodges says "I've been knowing
him for years and it's just so out of character for Lamar to have
just walked into the police station and went on a rampage like
that. He didn't seem to have any problems. We talked all the time.
He was always jovial. It's just so out of character."
His aunt, who did not give her name said "I did not believe it.
As a matter of fact, it's still, I'm still not digesting it right
Moore's family says the last time they saw him was just two
hours before the shootings.
His sister also did not give her name, but she described the
encounter like this: "He came in. He seen the baby. Just normal. He
was normal. He's never had a problem." Moore's sister went on to
say, "Nothing was abnormal. He wasn't upset about anything. He's
not a violent person. Nothing adds up here."
She says that shortly after the shooting, she went by her
brother's house. She was very emotional as she told Action News
that the police were already there. "I went by his home myself and
the crime scene van was already by his house. That was at 3:20
today. They were already knocking on his door and knocking at the
neighbors door and they were in his house, so how do you say, I
mean, they gotta show me a tape."
Moore's sister was referring to the tape from the cameras inside
the Northwest District. Moore's grandmother says she also wants to
see the tape, "Yes, I would like to see it. I mean it's just so
hard for me to believe that he did this."
Moore's aunt says the family has many questions, but that they
"just want some justice. Just like their families want justice, I
want justice for my brother."
