    The family of a man murdered on New Year's Eve is speaking for the first time.

    The victim's relatives say they are being told it was a robbery gone bad. Police now have video of three suspects they believe were a part of the killing.

    Angel Ujoumunna, the murder victim’s sister said, "His last words were, 'please tell my family and my kids I love them.'"

    31-year-old Onyedikachi Ujoumunna's sister shared her brother's last words.

    He was a U.S. Forest Service firefighter.

    Over the phone from Los Angeles Angel Ujoumunna tells us on New Year's Eve, her brother was looking forward to attending a big party. He stopped at his friend's house near Hacienda and Jones for a pre-event celebration on his way there.

    Angel Ujoumunna said, "Someone knocked on the door. You can see on the video the guy on the blue shirt knocked on the door. He shot him point blank."

    Police released home surveillance video of three suspects believed to be a part of the firefighter's murder. The men approached the home and Ujoumunna opened his friend's front door. After the shots were fired the men ran.

    Police say Ujoumunna's friend drove him to Spring Valley Hospital and dropped him off with two bullet wounds to his chest. Angel Ujoumunna says neither her brother or his friend knew these men.

    "I was told it was a robbery gone wrong."

    Family members say Ujoumunna was a happy man who loved his huge Nigerian family. He was the proud father of two children and loved fighting fires.

    Ujoumunna's father has strong words for the suspects shown on the video.

    Ahamefula Ujoumunna said, "They took my only son from me. Like I said may God have mercy on them, because I forgive them."
