A West Bank murder has loved ones turning to the public for clues.

It’s been two weeks since a 19-year Bryan Jones was gunned down near his home.

It happened in the 4100 block of Lac Couture Drive in Harvey.

Family members say Jones had gotten into an argument.

Moments later his mother heard multiple gunshots; then discovered her son’s lifeless body five blocks from their home.

“Can’t can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t nothing; can’t even much drive, I’m still shaking today,” Bryan’s mother Shantrell Jones said.

“Keep reliving the moment over, and over, and over again; running through this parking lot through the alley way and seeing my son, child lying on that ground,” Jones said.


During a candle light vigil at the scene Monday, loved ones pleaded for witnesses to the shooting to come forward.

Anyone with information in the case can make an anonymous call to Crimestoppers, at (504) 822-1111.
