The family of Tyrone Griffin says he and his girlfriend were shopping for one last Christmas present for his two kids.

Police say an altercation took place between Griffin, 36, and two men identified as 22-year-old Frankie Archuleta and 25-year-old Jesse Archuleta, who were allegedly playing vulgar music loudly on their cellphones in the toy section of the store while Griffin was shopping with his 4-year-old son. When Griffin confronted them about the music, a fight broke out and he was stabbed.

Griffin was taken to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

Griffin's mother says he spent some time in prison for robbery, but since his release, he was committed to his children and improving his own life.

"He wanted to get out and get into the working atmosphere and become a productive person of this world and give back," said Yolanda Lindsey.
