Last week, police said they arrested Othman Abdu, 18, in connection to the homicide. Investigators did not say if Abdu knew Winton before the encounter.

Winton was a father to a 1-year-old girl and a 2-month old boy, family members told WSYX.

"I don't even know how to put into words how painful it is to have somebody else rip your child from you," Winton's mother Candace Arline told the news station.
