ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Family and friends of a young Rockford murder victim say they're still searching for answers and justice more than half a year after the man died.
Shaq Zackery would have been 19 on Monday, May 12, 2014 had he not been gunned down at a party he attended in October on Rockford's south west side. His mother Innette Zackery says she's getting frustrated with the lack of progress in the open murder case and police tell her they are being stonewalled by everyone who was at the party because witnesses just aren't cooperating.
"my son is gone for senseless reasoning and somebody is out here walking free and it's not fair.We got a big loss here and i'm not feeling this and I'm just not... It's not right," Zackery said.
Innette says she will fight until her last breath to make sure her son's killer is brought to justice. She hopes those who know what happened will speak out and police are able to solve this case soon.
