    COMO, Miss. - For the last three years Como, Mississippi has been homicide free. Now, the MBI is investigating after a 25-year-old man was found shot multiple times.

    District Attorney John Champion told FOX13 it is a classic case of self-defense. Investigators said Christopher Davis broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and was killed by her boyfriend.

    The family of Davis said he was just going over to pick up his children from his ex's house. However, her current boyfriend said it was self-defense.

    Davis’s family said he wasn’t the type to start an altercation. Family members are now demanding to know how many times Davis was shot.

    Police told the family Davis entered the apartment through a window, but family members believe he's a too big to climb through a window.

    "He went to get his children and we don't know how going to get his kids came to the point of him getting killed," Denise Woods said.

    Denise Woods is Davis's aunt. She told us none of it makes any sense. She describes Davis as a jokester. She doesn't buy that he was at his ex-girlfriend's apartment to harm anyone when he was killed.

    "I don't believe it. There is no way. They say he tried to go through a window. He is too heavy to try to go through a window. He was a heavy and wide person. Too wide to go through a window," Woods said. "All we can do is just pray may God give us the strength and answers and justice." 

    The Panola County Coroner told us Davis's body was sent to the crime lab in Jackson for an autopsy.

    The DA said no charges have been filed at this point.
