A local father hopes someone will come forward and tell him who shot and killed his son in 2017.

“Being my first born and the fact that I was 18-years-old, he kind of helped me become who I am, what I mean is being young with a child comes certain responsibilities — learning how to be a man and learning how to be a father,” said Larry Morales Sr.

Larry Morales Jr. was leaving a store on Glendale Park near Dewey Avenue when he was shot and killed in May of 2017

While his father works with detectives for answers, he's also creating a non-profit called "Forever Twenty Two" to help other area youth.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
