    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Saturday morning, relatives and friends of Andre’ Jones gathered outside the house where he was killed, nearly one year later.

    The family went around the neighborhood to raise awareness about a case they’ve been trying to get to the bottom of for months.

    “I want closure. My family wants closure,” said Virgie Nelson, Jones’ mother.

     Jones was shot and killed outside his home last June.

    ”We still work on it on a regular basis,” said Sgt. Calvin Grantham of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. “We’ve had very few leads, and we believe because people have been afraid to talk.”

    The 46-year-old was a deacon at the Dwelling Place Christian church and was engaged to be married.

    If you have any information about the shooting, you are asked to contact police.
