The incident happened late Thursday night on Ruby Street around 11:45 p.m.
28-year-old Kevin Harvey was killed.
WLOX reports that Chief Ashley said investigators believe the incident started as an attempted home invasion. When the suspects weren’t able to get the door open, they began firing a rifle through the door. The bullets hit Harvey several times.
