Family searching for answers one year after death of Landan Stewart

PHOENIX - An Arizona family is still looking for answers one year after a man was shot and killed.

"No more, no more. It's enough. Let my son's life be enough blood on these streets," said Rosalind Akins, the mother of Landan Stewart.

Stewart, 24, was shot while driving his car near 24th Street and Broadway Road on May 28, 2013. His two young children were in the backseat.

They weren't physically injured, but now have to move on without a father.

"I'm a broken hearted mother. I have a son that has died right here on this corner," she said.

Authorities say they don't know who Stewart's killer is, but they're hoping somebody has some information that may help with the investigation.

"Somebody in this community knows something. Somebody saw something," Stewart's mother said.

She hopes enough time has passed that someone will come forward and give her family some closure.

"Somebody has to care," she said.

That's why Landan's family and friends walked the neighborhood where he died Wednesday night, to spread awareness that the violence has to stop.

"Do not let another young man die in these streets," she said.
