Friday, an off-duty officer said he chased Harris after he saw someone get shot near 69th Street and King Drive. The officer said he shot when the fleeing suspect pointed a gun at him.
Relatives insist Harris did not own a gun.
"If you hear shots, there's a lot going on right now, naturally you would run. Real great person, you know, always uplifting," said David Harris, uncle.
"He was not a person of the streets. He wanted to get his education. He loved playing sports, and he was just such a giving person," grandmother Elizabeth Harris said.
The other person who was shot was hospitalized Saturday with a leg wound.
Harris was the father of an 8-month-old daughter, Courtney.
