James Rayl’s family is now requesting justice after a disturbing video from the event was made public about a month after he was fatally shot.

In video obtained by the Daily Mail, Mitchell Duckro, the father of Allyson Duckro, can be seen shooting James Rayl, 22, three times as he tries to enter into his daughter’s home.

James Rayl was a native of Louisville, Kentucky, and was born on February 25, 2000, according to his obituary. 2018 saw him get diplomas from Upper Valley Career Center and Fairlawn High School. He worked in steel as a profession.

The obituary also emphasises Rayl’s passion for bodybuilding and his role as a health coach for others. He loved cars, owned three of them, and loved to play video games and play basketball. Along with being kind and helpful, Rayl also enjoyed making others laugh.

Rayl can be seen in the 40-second video attempting to enter the home of his ex-girlfriend Allyson Duckro while dressed in a grey T-shirt, shorts, a blue sweatshirt, and a baseball cap.

James can be seen ringing the doorbell many times before folding his hands behind his back and waiting for someone to answer.

He then appears to open the door by pressing his body on it as Mitchell Duckro, a family member inside, commands him to go.

Duckro claims to have a gun, but James continues to rap on the door despite this.

As James Rayl tries to exit the scene, three gunshots are heard, two of which hit him in the right and left shoulder and one of which hits him in the back.

Rayl is then seen flinching in the video as he stumbles back onto the porch and drops to the ground in front of the garage door.

Authorities discovered him and declared him dead a few minutes after the incident. According to the Sidney Daily News, the cause of death was listed in the autopsy report as two gunshot wounds to the shoulder and one fatal bullet to the back.

A Shelby County prosecutor named Tim Sell told WOWK 13 News that the jury decided against pressing charges against Mitchell Duckro for shooting Rayl on July 31.

A Shelby County grand jury rejected Duckro’s indictment earlier this month by an 8-1 margin, citing Ohio’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which stipulates that property owners are not required to leave their property before using force.

James’ family started a Facebook page to demand justice after learning Mitchell would not be prosecuted for the young man’s murder.
