DURANT, OK -- A man says his family is devastated after his brother was shot and killed by police officers.

The shooting happened Wednesday night around 10 p.m. in Lewisville, Texas.  Police say an employee at a McDonald's near I-35E reported that a man threatened someone with a gun in the drive-through lane.

According to police, three officers found a vehicle matching the description nearby in the same shopping center, and Roger Hamill, 31, got out with a gun in his hand and raised it in a manner that officers found threatening.

Police say Hamill refused to drop the gun, and that is when officers fired. Hamill was pronounced dead at Lewisville Medical Center. Texas Rangers are now looking into the incident.

"I just want my brother to be buried," says brother Benjamin Bacon. "He was a vet, an honorable vet and he deserves to be buried in peace with his family."

Bacon says the family is awaiting the results of the Ranger investigation. The Lewisville officers are on routine administrative leave. Family members say Hamill graduated from Fort Towson High School and served three tours in Iraq, the last in 2008.

Family members say Hamill had recently worked for Yellow trucking in Arkansas and recently lived in Idabel, working as a traveling monitor of artifacts on a Choctaw Nation project. Hamill's fiancee says they were about to get married.
