Ismael Lopez.

Police in Southaven, Mississippi are accused of shooting Ismael Lopez to death after going to the wrong house to serve a search warrant.

The search warrant showed “the address on the warrant was across the street from Lopez’s home,” WFTV reports. Lopez, 41, a car mechanic who helped troubled youths, was killed in his own home.

“A prosecutor said the officers may have gone looking for a suspect at the wrong address,” The Commercial Appeal reported.

Authorities allege Lopez was killed after a gun was pointed at them, but the family and others dispute that account.

The search warrant was actually for a man named Samuel Pearman, who is wanted in an arrest warrant “on a domestic aggravated assault charge after he allegedly choked a woman Sunday in front of her 4-year-old child at a Tate County gas station” in Southaven, Mississippi, reported WFTV.

For his part, Pearson said on Facebook that he hasn’t done anything wrong.

“Someone didn’t take the time to analyze the address,” said Murray Wells, an attorney for Lopez’s family. “This is incredibly tragic and embarrassing to this police department that they can’t read house numbers.”
