Jones' cousin, Barbara Cooper, and her husband, Willie Cooper, said he was looking at houses in the area with a family member when there was some sort of altercation with an unknown man.

"He was telling the guy: 'God bless you brother, God bless you. What are you doing?'" Willie Cooper said.

Jones is remembered for his strong faith. He served as a videographer at Pentecostal Temple for years.

"So many things and memories we have locked in have been because of Nick and his skill," Pastor Kellen Brooks said.

Police are still looking for the shooter.
