Family said that everyone called Bibbs "Bean," and the idea of a gunmen wildly shooting in the street still bothers them to this day.

GRIFFIN, Ga. - A Griffin family told Channel 2 Action News they are grieving after losing their loved one to gun fire last month when a shooter opened fire toward a crowd of men.

Detectives old Channel 2's Ryan Young bullets ripped through the air, and the markings from the bullets can still be seen on a nearby telephone poll.

Jarvis Bibbs was shot in the head during the incident.

Several of his family members talked to Young about the crime including Bibbs' cousin, mother and brother.

"I wish they could feel what we feel. Maybe they can't, but I wish someone would step up. It's not fair. It's not right," said Tamika Juster, who was close to her cousin and believes someone should help.

Larry Bibbs told Young that everyone called his brother "Bean," and the idea of a gunmen wildly shooting in the street still bothers him to this day.

Detectives showed Young where bullets hit a telephone pole and said they believe several shots were fired toward a crowd, while the shooter used the dark to conceal themselves from those standing around.

"It's (the) worst depression in the world, a feeling you can't explain. So many tears you can't shed out at one time," Larry Bibbs said.

Investigators said they need someone from the community to call in with clues because, so far, there are very few.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
