Family of Mark Eric Henderson Jr.,An unarmed man shot by police at a Woodbury motel was trying to flee his captor, relatives said Saturday.

When the gunman who had been tormenting the group told Henderson to go to the window to see if any police were outside, Henderson took his chance and made a beeline for the door. The kidnapper opened fire at him in response but missed. As Henderson bolted out the door toward them, Woodbury police opened fire and cut him down.

His father, Mark Henderson Sr., said it upset him that not just one officer fired at his son but three. "If [suspects] don't have a gun, aren't they trained not to shoot?" he asked.
