Shelby County Sheriff’s Office officials said Bryan Hervey, 61, was killed in the incident early Wednesday morning.

FOX13 spoke to a man who woke up to the gunshots and walked outside to see what happened.

"There was a pause, then there was probably six to eight more shots," Don Warsham said. "And, I looked to the west here right in front of Linnean and I could see the gunfire coming from the muzzle."

Warsham said he heard a man say, "Come on let's go," but did not see the suspects. SCSO has not released information on who they are looking for.

"We prayed for the family this morning that obviously have lost a loved one," Warsham said. "So, me and my boys, before they went to school, prayed for them this morning. So, that's all we can do."
