King got into an argument with her boyfriend on Sunday. He became violent so she ran to a house on manor drive for help.
Her boyfriend Matthew Hollgarth ran into the house and was shot by the conservation officer who lived there.
People on facebook and throughout social media are calling Hollgarth a monster.
They're saying he had every right to be shot. But his girlfriend, the victim and who witnessed it all has a much different story.
Flashback ten years. It's when Amber King met who she says was the love of her life.
"He was so funny and goofy. No matter what kind of mood he was in he could always make you laugh." King said.
THERE WAS NOTHING MATTHEW HOLLGARTH LOVED MORE THAN HIS GIRLFRIEND AND THEIR FOUR-YEAR-OLD SON LANDEN.
"We were gonna be together forever. He was my everything. Now he's gone." King said.
Flash forward to early Sunday morning. King and Hollgarth got into a heated argument.
She ran and banged on the door of this house.
"I didn't know what to do." King said.
The man inside was a conservation officer and told her to get on the floor. Moments later, Hollgarth kicked down the door.
"This is stuff you see on TV. I never would've suspected this to happen to us." King said.
After warning him, the officer shot Hollgarth.
"I was just screaming for him and he wouldn't answer me." King said.
HE WAS GONE.
"I know something bad happened, but that wasn't him. It wasn't him." King said.
King says Hollgarth was never violent and had never laid a hand on her before that night.
But says one bad argument, killed the love of her life.
"It's the worst thing anybody could ever go through. To watch the person they love more then anything...take their last breath." King said.
King and Hollgarth's mom say the officer was wrong in killing him.
"I feel as if he probably could've shot him in the leg or the arm." King said.
"He had no right to shoot Matthew to kill him. Matthew shouldn't have died." Hollgarth said.
To these people Hollgarth was a son, nephew, grandson and father. They hope the ones who are labeling as a monster take a second look.
"You can always assume and base stuff off stories but no one will ever know. No one will ever know."
The name of this officer isn't being revealed, but he has been cleared by the Decatur Police Department.
Police say this officer was defending his children who were in the house at the time.
King and Hollgarth were dating off and on for years. They got divorced a year ago. The grounds of their divorce was mental cruelity.
She says they've had their disagreements but nothing like this.
