A family is asking why their loved one was gunned down early Sunday morning in Mt. Auburn. 

In the early morning hours Sunday, deputies responded to a call of a person who had been shot.

That's where they found Angelo Dykes,31, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he later died. 

"He was a good person. He was loyal. He was sweet. He was humble. He was respectful. He never hurt anyone," stated Angelo's cousin Kathy Dykes. 

The Dykes family said this isn't the first time gun violence has struck their family. 

"Violence has struck my family for the third time," claimed Angelo's aunt Robyn Dykes-Seaborough. "Right now all we're asking for is a prayer." 

While family members try to make sense of the crime, those who live nearby are on edge. Chris Curry said he awoke to the gun shots. 

I got up because my son's crib is right next to my bed and I was freaking out," said Curry. "I ran around the house and checked on all the kids to make sure nothing came into our house."

It's also frustrating for curry who says other children live in the neighborhood. 

"It's aggravating because there are a lot of kids who live around here and we don't want this stuff in our neighborhood," proclaimed Curry. 

In the meantime, the Dykes family just wants closure. 

"We're asking anyone that may be able to help with the murder of my nephew to please come forward, families are suffering," plead the Dykes family.
