CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Family members and friends of Romell Langford Jr. gathered in Cleveland’s Public Square on Thursday morning as part of an effort to renew interest in an unsolved murder case.

Langford was shot several times in January 2019 and found outside of his Collonade Road apartment, according to investigators.

The victim initially survived the shooting but died as a result of his injuries 19 months later in September 2020.

Latisha Powell, Langford’s mom took care of her son, who needed 24-hour care after he was shot in the head until he died and now she is pushing for answers and an arrest.

“I am tired, I am tired, I want justice for my son I want closure to all of this,” she said.

Cleveland Police, last year, released surveillance video that shows two people running from the Collonade Avenue home where Langford was shot and then walking down the street.

Police are calling the two men, persons of interest.

Powell named an individual who she believes is responsible for the shooting, but neither police nor the prosecutor’s office has publicly identified a suspect.
