Eight months later, there's still no justice for Desmond Jackson's family.

Jackson was gunned down in Seattle's SODO neighborhood on February 12, 2012. A group of people drove up on him and his friends near South Walker Street and Occidental Avenue and opened fire.

Jackson was shot dead; one of his friends was wounded in the shooting. Still, no one has come forward to talk about the case.

His great-aunt, Gazelle Williams, is hoping technology, like the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) tests, could help find the killer.

"They could have the weapon that killed Desmond," Williams said. "Those guns could be right there in their lockup, and they know who had those guns so we could get them off the street and we could get justice."

Jackson's case has since been featured by the Seattle Police's "Who Killed Me?" campaign. Pictures of him are on billboards and bus ads, asking anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at (206)-233-5000 or leave an anonymous tip at www.crimestoppers.com.
