JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- You never want to outlive your children -- that's what one local father told Action News after learning someone shot and killed his only son.

"(He was an) all-around good kid, hard-working and always wanted to help people," said father Keith Klinedinst.

For him, the pain is all too familiar.

"My dad was killed in a homicide in Jacksonville 20 years ago," he said.

Ian Klinedinst would have been celebrating his 23rd birthday next week. On Sunday night, he drove into a Southside neighborhood with his two youngest children in the car, and his fiancée and friends in another car.

"Everybody goes back there, it doesn't matter why he was back there. He had a right to go wherever he wants. He wasn't doing anything wrong," said Klinedinst.

Investigators said 36-year-old Karla Davis had just realized her home had been ransacked and when she saw two unrecognizable vehicles drive past her property, they said she lashed out.

"She became mad, armed herself with a handgun, got in her car and drove down the street," said Assistant Chief Chris Butler with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Davis reportedly fired one round, killing the father of three right in front of his children. The family is calling it a tragic case of mistaken identity, now they say they want her to feel their pain.

"Death is too easy. I want her to suffer like we are," said Klinedinst.
