13 Action News spoke with a relative of Kuwait Abdul-Rahim. The man did not want his identity released because of his job. The family is grateful the child was found safe.

"I'm pretty sure he doesn't know exactly what's going on, but I'm sure he feels it," said the relative.

The relative also provided new details about what occurred in the moments before Amir Abdul-Rahim allegedly shot a neighbor.

"He mentioned to him... you probably want to take the baby inside," said the relative, "...he just flipped a switch."

Right now, police continue to search for the suspect. The relative wants Abdul-Rahim to surrender to detectives.

"The sheriff in Clark County has promised to catch criminals who commit violent crimes and it could end a nasty way," he said.
