MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - It has been over a year since an 18-year-old Mobile man was shot and killed during a Mardi Gras party at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Duval Street.
His family says no one has been charged with his murder, and they still want justice.
Jakaria Fox was shot, along with his brother and cousin, during an altercation inside the hall, on the night of February 21, 2012.
Before his death, Jakaria earned his GED and was taking classes at Bishop State Community College. He'd planned on becoming an electrician.
The night of the shooting, Fox helped his brother get outside and the two victims made it as far as the sidewalk near Duval Street.
His brother and cousin survived, but Fox died early the next morning at a local hospital.
"Six-shots rang out in the club and nobody comes out of the club? Somebody has seen something, somebody knows something," said Corey Fox.
Jakaria's cousin, Corey Fox, thinks about his cousin everyday. He took him to the club that night and said he held Jakaria Fox 's hand as his life slipped away.
"He didn't say nothing; his eyes were closed, his hands were cold," said Corey Fox.
Fox says detectives were in contact with the family for about a month after Jakaria's death, but his case went nowhere.
"I just want justice for my cousin and some closure for my aunt -- she really need closure, I do too because it's bad to sit there and hold your cousin dying in your arms. That's something no one should ever experience," said Corey Fox.
