LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- With candles held tight and tears in their eyes, the family of Deontre “Tre” Rhodes gathers near  32nd St. and John Barrow Rd. to remember him.

Little Rock Police say the 19-year-old was shot near the intersection last March and died two days later. 

The gunman has not been identified or caught. 

Roderick Davis, Rhodes’ uncle, says, “It’s been a struggle, the one-year anniversary with him being gone. He was just full of life.”

Davis is barely able to speak, as he thinks about fond memories of his nephew.

“He loved to dance,” says Davis. “From when I met him, he was dancing, always had a smile on his face.”

Davis was deployed overseas when he logged onto social media last year, and saw a Facebook Live feed of his nephew on the ground, bleeding after being shot.

“It was just so devastating,” Davis says.

He last spoke to his nephew a week before the shooting, Rhodes wanted to buy Davis’ car and wanted to know how to be a good father to his only child, a son, now 2 years old.

“I miss talking to him daily,” says Davis. “No matter what we had going on, we all talked.”

He says the reality of Rhodes being gone really struck home when Davis returned to the U.S. from deployment. His nephew, who would normally be around to welcome him home, was not there.

“It was kind of tough, I didn’t see Tre,” Davis recalls.

He wears a shirt with a picture of Rhodes on it.

“It’s tough,” Davis says. “We do a lot of praying.”

Hoping that someone who knows anything about his nephew’s murder will speak out, helping to bring the family some justice.

“We take it one day at a time, one year at a time, and we just got to keep rolling,” says Davis. “Keep God on our side and roll with it.”
