Two undercover drug officers were at the apartment complex to follow up on an unrelated case, police said.

The two officers, identified as Yong Hall and Amanda White, approached the men. There was a confrontation that eventually lead to police shooting and killing one of the men, identified as Izzy Colon, and taking the other man, Ricardo Caban, into custody.

Caban has been charged with reckless display of a firearm and possession of firearm and ammo.

Colon's family says Colon was unarmed.

"My brother was not playing with guns that's not true," one family member said.

Police haven't commented on the family's claim.

Neither officer was injured in the incident. They are on paid leave while the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigates. White has been with OPD since 2009 and Hall has been with OPD since 2007, according to police.http://www.clickorlando.com/news/orlando-police-shoot-kill-man-at-apartment-complex_20151106184316992
