    Rayl was struck in the left shoulder, right shoulder and back, through the front door and staggered away after the shooting.

    Duckro was heard telling police that he ‘shot through the door’ because he was ‘nervous’ about Rayl’s behavior.

    He also admitted that the 9mm firearm used in the killing was registered to his father-in-law.

    Allyson Duckro, 22, had broken up with Rayl a year and a half before her dad shot him dead.
