"All of this is a shock. I woke up to banging on my bedroom door. 'Brandon's shot. He's found dead in his truck,' and I come to see. I turned the corner right here. All the lights flashing," said Tyrone Joiner, Brandon's father.

Brandon Joiner's father said he believes a jealous ex may be involved.

"Family is taking this loss seriously. There's a lot of family members and people who just don't know right now," said Tyrone Joiner.

Friends say Clarke had three young daughters.

"It's just sad. The whole thing is unfortunate and sad. Whatever needs to be known -- everybody just needs to speak up. People just need to speak up because there's too many murders going on and nobody's saying anything," a friend said.

Officers and detectives are investigating -- seeking a motive and suspect(s).

"Justice will prevail," said Tyrone Joiner.
