PASCO, WA - As the investigation continues in the shooting death of a man allegedly trying to get inside a Pasco home last week, the family and friends of that man remembered him Sunday.

NBC Right Now spoke with the family that say they want to defend Aceves' character.

They say they were at Applebees earlier that night before they all headed back to his step-brother's house which is across the street from where the shooting took place.  Aceves's step sister in-law says they were hanging out and having some drinks before he stepped out of the house.    

His father, Alfredo Aceves thinks his son was confused and knocked on the wrong door coming back from a possible smoke break.  

"I just don't want this community or this area here to think that my son was some bad person," said Alfredo Aceves. 

"He's only been here three months and of those three months he's been at our house once, I just know he was confused it was a terrible mistake," said Anna Marie Bush, Aceves's Sister-in-Law.

The family says Aceves had recently moved to the area from Montana to be closer to his mom and sisters.      

The investigation is on-going and police are still trying to determine whether the home owner was justified in shooting Aceves.    

NBC Right Now will continue following all sides of this ongoing story.
