KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police are investigating after a man was shot to death early Wednesday in an apparent home invasion.

The shooting happened shortly before 4:30 a.m. in the 4200 block of East 105th Street in the south part of the city. It's in a neighborhood just east of Grandview Road and south of the Three Trails Crossing.

Police are waiting for an official ID from the coroner, but a man who was on scene earlier said it was his 28-year-old son, Timothy Ford.

The father, Timothy Wilson, said Ford, his girlfriend and four children were inside the home asleep. The children were between 2 and 13 years old.

It is uncertain at this point if Ford was the father of all four children,

The girlfriend told relatives that multiple suspects began banging on the door about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and yelled "police." Then, police said, the suspects forced their way in.

Ford was in a different room than the others and was shot and killed.

Police said the girlfriend did not get a good look at the suspects, but said there were more than two.

Now, Ford's father, who said he already lost a young son years ago, must bury another and help his family.

Neighbors said the house had a busy trail of people going in and out but no serious crimes were reported. Wilson now plans to care for the four children left behind and their mother.

"I got those kids to raise. I'm thinking about them and the trauma set before them," Wilson said.

Wilson said his son worked in construction rehabbing homes.
