Ural Godfrey was known as a hardworking family man who would give you the shirt off his back in order to help.
Around 4:30 Friday morning he was ambushed while he got into his truck to go to work and was shot and killed. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
12 hours after the shooting, a sizable crowd gathered in front of his mother's house. To the passerby the gathering might have looked like a Friday evening, end of the work week party, but a closer glance would reveal the gathering was made up of broken-hearted people who missed the man they called "Bootsy".
"We love you Uncle Bootsy, we love you Uncle Bootsy," said a family member.
The shooting happened at 1389 East 89th Street. Police have no motive but neighbors say it could have been a robbery that yielded no money.
"You didn't get anything but you took my brother's life," cried another family member.
Police are looking for two suspects but do not have a good description of them because they wore clothing that concealed their faces.
