"Detectives are asking residents in the area to check their surveillance cameras for footage of any unknown vehicles or people between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Sunday," officers wrote.

Ida Randolph, whose mother lives in the neighborhood, said Jordan's father is known for being the neighborhood's biggest helping hand.

“He was just over here. He and his son (the victim) were over here last week to help my mom,” she said. “And who would’ve known that was my first and last time meeting him and seeing him?”

Randolph said she was "devastated" by the unexpected loss and hopes police find the person responsible.

“It’s so sad and I pray for justice and closure for the family,” Randolph said.
