New Orleans, La. - Pictures and memories are the only things left to the family of a young man described as a kind, smart person who never deserved what happened to him.
"He went to Salmen High School and kept a 3.0-grade point average throughout his tenure. After he graduated, he immediately enrolled in the University of New Orleans," says Becky P. Graham, Jaquon Pittman's mother.
Graham says her son had been accepted in the U.S. Air Force, but the day before he was supposed to leave, his life was taken.
Jaquon was in the backyard of the house next door to his grandmother's home in the 2400 block of Arts St. His family says he was talking to a girl.
"The next thing I heard was a loud noise. At first, I thought it was fireworks because it was just after the Fourth of July, until I heard 'boom, boom, boom,'" says Cutine Pittman, Jaquon's grandmother.
Pittman says she ran outside. "He was laying up against my fence. You could see blood running out of his mouth," says Pittman.
"He was shot in that yard 15 times by some thugged-out assailants and we want answers," says Becky Graham.
It's been a year since Jaquon's murder and still no arrests have been made. The victim's family says the pain of his loss will never go away but they're holding on to hope that those responsible are caught soon.
Crimestoppers is offering a $2,500 reward in this case.
