Posted 9:15 AM 10/25/2013 : Tucson football league wants justice for their murdered coach
TUCSON - A youth football league is mourning the loss of a coach who was murdered.
Jajuan Gordon, 31, was shot at a bus stop near Golf Links and Wilmot Roads October 18. He died October 22.
For years, he volunteered with the Tucson Youth Football and Spirit Federation. He started this season coaching the Falcons, then moved to another team.
His friend, William Gambrell, also coached him on the semi-pro team, the Tucson Barbarians.
"It speaks volumes about what type of person that he is," Gambrell said, "When you have somebody coming out and giving back to the community."
Another Falcons coach, Rodney Rodgers, said Gordon loved his family and his church.
"He was an outstanding gentleman. He was always for the kids," Rodgers said. "He was an outstanding family man. When we started this year, he had a pouch, with his baby in the pouch as he was coaching."
Police believe Gordon was confronted by a group of people, so somebody must know what happened.
"It was sad. It was sad," Gambrell said. "We want justice."
One of his relatives, Monica Gordon, said his shoes were stolen and he was shot in the back of the head.
