AURORA, Colo. -- The death of a young father from Aurora is being classified as a case of road rage and investigators with the Aurora Police Department are still trying to find the man who shot and killed Jevon Bailey.

Bailey and a friend were passing by an area near East Illif Avenue and South Troy Street in Aurora, when a black man driving a white Pontiac G6 4-door sedan opened fire, police said. Bailey was shot and eventually died.

“There’s no words. It’s just senseless. Just senseless,” said Valinda Bailey, Jevon’s stepmother.

The incident happened on Dec. 22. There are few clues in the case and the suspect remains on the loose.

“We know someone saw something. We’re just hoping they’ll come forward with information that will lead to the arrest of this person,” Valinda Bailey said.

To raise awareness about her stepson’s death, Valinda Bailey and her husband are hosting a Memorial Walk on April 2 at Overland High School (12400 E. Jewell Ave.). Guests are asked to arrive around 10:30 a.m. and park in the south parking lot.

The walk will begin at noon and will last about an hour.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 or Det. Matt Ingui at 303-739-6067.

A GoFundMe Page was created to help Jevon’s daughter.
