FOX 5 spoke to the victim's brother, Ernest Thomas, who said he was "shocked" when he found out Lee was shot. 

"I'm from inner-city Washington D.C. That stuff happened in the neighborhood where I grew up in, but it's all over the place now," he said. 

Prince George’s County police say they are still working to determine a motive though they believe Thomas was shot during a carjacking.
