Jalonte Johnson has been mourning the loss of his pregnant mother and teenage brother since they were murdered on November 21, 2014 in a home on E. 92nd Street.

Five people were killed in that home in one of Cleveland's deadliest shootings: 41-year-old Sherita Johnson, her unborn son, 60-year-old Lemon Bryant, 17-year-old Shaylona Williams and 19-year-old Ja'rio Taylor.

Johnson returned to the home for the first time since that awful night.

"It's empty. It don't feel like any life here," Jalonte said, "It's empty."

So far, police have not made any arrests. A spokesman for Cleveland police says there are no new leads in the case.

"Three-and-a-half months later. It's kind of hard for us to grieve in peace and mourn just knowing that it was that easy for someone to do this and from the looks of it get away," said Jalonte.

Memorials still sit outside the home and Jalonte said he keeps wondering what happened, who did it, and why.

"That's the worst thing. I don't know why. It was so random. I was just talking to my mother three hours before she passed," he said, "My mother didn't do anything. She went to church. She took care of us. My brother, he was a senior in high school. How many 18-year-olds you know that's a deacon on the church board. Not too many."

Anyone with more information on these murders is urged to call police or Crime Stoppers at (216) 252-7463. A $25,000 reward is available.
