Another woman at the scene shortly after the incident told NewsChannel 3 that her son was the victim. Other family members said he was the father of two young daughters.

"It's just crazy. I can't believe he's gone," said Phyllis Vinson, a friend. "You have to be a careless person to do something like that."

McCloud's exact cause of death will be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
