LAKE CITY, Fla -- The investigation continues in Lake City after a man was killed by police after a disturbance call early Tuesday morning.
Three officers are now on administrative leave.
Action News spoke exclusively to 30-year-old Jeramey Sweeny's family. Now Jeramey's girlfriend is also sitting down exclusively with Action News.
"I was holding him saying please wake up Jeramey please wake up. This is not happening," said Nicole Maldonado.
For Maldonado, the wounds are fresh. Just three days ago, Sweeny was shot dead by a Lake City Police officer on the doorstep of the apartment they shared. A makeshift memorial now rests where Jeramey took his final breath.
But inside apartment 203, Maldonado can't wipe his final moments from her mind.
"He had his gun and he was standing right here actually. He cocked it and I had this door propped open and I was half out and I said Jeramey no don't and before I could say anything else he already went around me and as soon as he came around me the cop yelled gun and started shooting. The first shot I dropped down like this. And I didn't move until the shooting stopped. Once the shooting stopped I looked over and I saw Jeramey laying there and I dropped my phone and I got on him and I was just holding him."
Nicole says her ex boyfriend also lived here. And the night he died tension turned into an all out fight between the men. It was only after her ex's brother came inside and began punching Jeramey that she called 911 for help. She says the brother took off and Jeramey tried to follow when he walked out that door at the exact wrong time.
"I hope and pray that justice will be served," she said. While her ex and his brother didn't pull the trigger, she thinks they deserve to be charged.
Lake City Police tell Action News they're waiting for the FDLE to wrap up the investigation then Lake City investigators will complete their own. Right now, no charges have been filed against the brothers.
A service is now set for Jeramey. It's happening Saturday September 1 at 3 p.m. at Gateway-Forest Lawn Funeral Home.
