Jenkins was ambushed and killed in the 15000 block of Coyle Street. Police said they have an idea of who committed the crime, but they need more evidence before they can charge the alleged killer or killers.

Monday was the one-year anniversary of the fatal shooting. Jenkins' mother said that day was hard for her.

"I could not move, I could not get out of bed," Josephine White said. "I kept praying and asking God to reveal who did this to my son."
