MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) - Family members of the only man currently jailed in connection to a shooting in Muskegon say that police claim surveillance video shows a gun in Antonio Raglin's hand the night of the violent melee.
Seven people were shot Sunday morning outside of the Elk's Charity Lodge in Muskegon. Three of the victims -- DuPree Barnes, Jacolby Brown and Jalisa Love -- died as a result of their injuries.
Raglin was one of the people shot that night. He suffered a bullet wound to his leg, his family said. But after he was released from the hospital, Raglin was arrested.
He had outstanding warrants, but Raglin's family says police told the 20-year-old felon that they also obtained video of him holding a gun the evening of the shootings.
Raglin's family says there's no way he would have been involved with the murders, especially since he was friends with victims DuPree Barnes and Jacolby Brown. The three attended school together.
"We've been around each other since elementary. People who've been around each other that long, they just don't do stuff like that to each other," Angelo Raglin, Antonio's brother, said.
Patricia Sims, Raglin's mother, said she asked her son if he shot any of the victims.
"He looked me dead in my face and he told me 'no,'" Sims said. "A mother knows when her child is lying. ... My baby didn't have nothing to do with that."
In addition to his other outstanding charges, Raglin is expected to be formally charged for being a felon in possession of a firearm the night of the shootings, lying to a police officer during an investigation into a violent crime, and committing a felony while in possession of a gun.
Muskegon County prosecutors say that Raglin is not a suspect in the shootings, but have called him in a "person of interest" in the investigation.
In the past Raglin, has faced criminal charges. Most recently, he was accused of hitting a woman and her child and then driving away from the scene in June of last year. The incident was caught on surveillance cameras.
Raglin's family says they don't believe he was driving the van in that incident.
While expressing condolences for the family of the victims that did not survive, Raglin's family members say they too are grieving the loss of the victims.
Raglin is expected in court Tuesday.
Police continue their hunt for suspects in the shootings. Monday, they released surveillance photos of a vehicle they suspect ran over victim Jalisa Love after she was shot. Love died shortly after she was taken to the hospital.
