    Jeannine Hickey said it just doesn't make any sense. She doesn't understand why anyone would shoot and kill her son Jordan. The developmentally disabled man was shot last week while riding his bike in National City. (Published Wednesday, May 4, 2011)

    Investigators have no leads in the case said Detective Leslee Hall from the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

    Investigators are concerned that the largely Hispanic community near the murder scene may know something about the crime but are hesitant to call authorities because of  fears of other legal ramifications.

    "This kills me every day," Jeannine Hickey said. "People tell you it gets better. It doesn't get better."

    Anyone with information about the murder is asked to call Crimestoppers (888) 580-8477.
