Loved ones remember man gunned down near 32nd and Brown

MILWAUKEE -- Family members, friends and loved ones gathered Sunday, September 23rd to remember a 34-year-old man gunned down near 32nd and Brown early Saturday morning.

Tawanna Jordan's big brother, James "Trell" Jackson was killed in the shooting. Sunday evening, she and others gathered near the scene of the shooting.

"Whoever knows something, whoever saw something, whoever heard something -- just come forward, because my brother didn`t deserve this," Jordan said.

Emotions were still raw following the weekend murder, and loved ones pleaded to the public for help identifying a suspect.

"The people really need to come forward because families are hurting," Jackson's cousin, Corey Daniels said.

As police continue to investigate, stuffed animals, balloons and notes of remembrance mark the spot where Jackson lost his life.

"It means a lot to have the support that we have because he was my only brother. He was the oldest child, and he was my momma's baby," Jordan said.

Jordan says her brother had twins on the way -- a boy and a girl. Jordan told FOX6 News she is listening to her own child as she tries to work through the pain.

"She told me 'Momma, it`s going to be okay. We`re going to see him again.' For a three-year-old to tell her momma that I`m going to see my brother again. It may not be soon, but I`m going to see him," Jordan said.

The family is planning Jackson's funeral for Saturday, September 29th.

Jackson leaves behind his unborn twins, four sisters and his parents.
