Tim Story was shot dead by the police after he tried running from them.
The police have refused to answer questions from News24 about the circumstances of the shooting, but the matter is currently being investigated.
Story was a black man who was wanted for allegedly assaulting and raping a woman in his apartment in a West Palm Beach, Florida, hotel room.
The woman is now in stable condition.
He had been charged with three felonies.
Police have not released details about the woman or the alleged victim, but say she has since been released from the hospital.
Police are also investigating a report that the woman had a knife and threatened to kill the man.
The man was reportedly trying to get away from the woman when he was shot.
A woman who identified herself as the woman’s daughter, however, said her father was unarmed when he went to the hotel room and that she witnessed him struggle.
The victim’s mother has also refused to give her name and the police have not responded to News24’s request for her side of the story.
The victim was arrested in June for attempted rape and was sentenced to three years in prison.
The incident was reported to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on February 18.
According to News 24, the woman said her mother told her that the man had been drinking and that the night before he had assaulted her and threatened her with a knife.
She also said she did not know if the man was armed.
The man has been charged in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
