Family members of a 20-year-old Monticello man killed in a shooting are mourning.
"For [other family members], I have to at least appear or try to be strong, you know? I can't say, it's going to be alright," Deshawn's father Lamond said.
DeShawn Chamberlin McCabe suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the chest on a shooting that happened last Friday night in Crystal.
His parents say their son was a prankster. He was also considered thoughtful and a good dad to his son.
"He was amazing, I'm gonna miss him," Chantal McCabe said.
A news release from the Crystal Police Department said officers were called around 7:45 p.m. to the 3000 block of Sumter Avenue, in front of the Crystal Village Apartments, on a report of someone laying on the ground in a parking lot.
When officers arrived, they located a 20-year-old man who suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. He was identified as McCabe, according to a news release from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner on Sunday.
"He was going to be the best father in the world," Lamond said.
Police say the incident was not a random act and it is being investigated as a homicide.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Crystal Police Department at 952-258-5321.
