SPRING VALLEY, Calif. (KGTV) — Loved ones are in search of answers after a Spring Valley man and new father was found shot to death inside his home.

“I feel like a hole has been pierced in my soul,” said Jordan Farmer’s mother, Trena.

Days later, a family is still reeling from grief and disbelief.

“The happiness and cheer has left me, hard to even move,” Trena said.

Late Friday night, inside an apartment on Delrose Avenue, Trena and two family members were in a bedroom watching TV. She says her 25-year-old son and a friend were playing video games in the living room when someone knocked at the door.
