Wells said she’s still in shock and disbelief at the fact that her nephew was shot and killed.

“Well I got a call and I didn’t want to believe it, but you know, I later went over there to the crime scene,” she said. “When I got there, it was just so unreal, and I just, still to this day I just can’t believe it.”

Family members said they still don’t know exactly what happened or what led to the gunfire.

“He wasn’t a bad person for anybody to kill him or nothing like that,” said Chris Rice, the victims cousin

Rice said he and Moody used to hang out almost everyday.

He describes his cousin as being very humorous and caring, the type of person who never met a stranger.

“He was loving, he loved everybody,” said Rice. “If he could help you he’d help you.”

And they say he was also a family man who loved spending time with his two little girls.

“They are four and three, four and three, and they loved their daddy, they are daddy’s girls,” said Wells.

Family members said Moody Junior also had aspirations to someday join the U.S. military.

During this difficult time, the family said they’ll depend on prayer and help from above to help them stay strong.

And there’s only one thing that’ll bring the family closure.

“Justice. Justice, knowing that who ever did it turn themselves in, justice,” said Wells.
