"We just wanna get answers to who did this to my dad."

Josaia Branch, 16, was there when his father Joel Branch was gunned down In his own front yard two years ago. 

"I was at home in the shower and I heard gunshots and I tried to run outside and then I seen (sic) everything on the floor and then I didn't see my dad anywhere," he said. 

Branch was chased inside the house where he died, he'd  been watching a game on the lawn with his cousin Gerald Morris. He was also shot and killed outside by two men on foot who ran off. 

Down the street, another man was shot in his car but he survived. Investigators believe the same two gunmen were involved.

"We still don't have justice we don't know who murdered who murdered them in front of their own house."

For Branch's sister Johnnie this a family still determined to get answers. 

A double murder, a triple shooting and she says two years later silence, no leads...nothing.

"It's isolated me personally from people because I don't know who to trust anymore," she said. 

With police by their side the family walked the same Valencia Park neighborhood where her brother was killed handing out fliers, she says to keep their memory, the faces of her family alive. 

"The community knows something, there were 2 shooters, somebody knows something," she said.
