Police say no arrests have been made in connection with this shooting.

Conn's family is now asking for anyone with a potential lead to come forward.

"I just want anybody with any type of answers or information on who could`ve did it, what they say, what kind of car it may have been - something to help us get closure to our brother`s death," Conn's sister, Lisa Conn said.

Relatives say Conn is survived by his four children -- ranging in age from one to eight years old.

His family says they are planning to hold a vigil in Conn's honor on Friday night, July 11th near 11th and Atkinson.
