A 35-year-old man, who family members identify as Belton "Amir" Lomax, was killed at Locust Avenue and Devon Street in Germantown last night. Police say he was armed with a semi-automatic weapon and aimed his gun at officers. 

Lomax was a father of 8. Family members and neighbors claim he was unarmed, but police say they received several 911 calls reporting an armed man at that location. Investigators say his weapon was recovered at the scene.
