TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A week later, the family of Jajuan Gordon continues to search for answers to his murder.

Tucson Police say that the 31-year-old was at a bus stop on Golf Links near Kolb when a group of male suspects approached him, and that at least one of the group was a gang member.  On Friday, Gordon's family made sure to say that he was not involved with a gang, that he coached Pop Warner football for about five years and went to church.  He leaves a 13 year-old son, a one year-old daughter, a fiancé, and the fiancé's eight year-old son whom he would have adopted.

"He spent quality time with us, he called everybody he cared about and let them know, just for no apparent reason, that he was on their mind. And that's important and it's rare nowadays that people are so thoughtful. He will be missed, I will always love him and I miss him, I miss him very much," said fiancé De'Andra Young.

The family is asking for donations for emergency expenses in Jajuan Gordon's name at any Wells Fargo bank.

Anyone who saw anything at the bus stop is urged to call 88-CRIME, where they can remain anonymous.

The family wants to see the killer brought to court and given his punishment.

But they still need an arrest in this case.

They also want to protect their family member's image since police say this shooting appears gang-related.
