Danny Donato was killed at Leestown Middle School, where he worked for the last year. His family is now speaking to 27 NEWSFIRST about the man they all loved.

A family grieves after one of their own, 38-year old Jose Daniel Donato, was shot and killed where he worked as a custodian.

His accused shooter, 27-year-old Brian McGuire worked with Donato. The Fayette County School representatives say McGuire had filed a formal complaint against his co-worker, but Donato's family says even that comes as a shock.

They say Donato did mention McGuire before but only to say that he tried to help him at work.

Former co-worker and friend, J.R. Davis, says trouble at the work place is unbelievable.

The Donato family also shared with me Wednesday that Danny was killed on his brother's birthday.
