A man was sitting in his car on San Antonio's East Side and all of the sudden everything went blank. The man was fatally shot in what police believe was a the result of a robbery.
Though police have said witnesses reported seeing two women leave the scene in an SUV, the man's family has yet to get closure years later.
Alfredo Giddens Jr. was fatally shot Oct. 1, 2014, and no one has been charged in the crime, according to police in San Antonio, Texas.
The shooting took place in the 1000 block of South Gevers Street. After the shooting, Giddens Jr. was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
"I go to sleep with it in on my mind," Alfredo Giddens Sr. said in an interview with KSAT.com six months after the shooting. "I wake up with it on my mind. It's just hard. I just want some closure."
Two women were seen leaving the crime scene in an SUV, according to police. A witness told police the shooter was a heavy-set black woman.
Police and Giddens Sr. believe robbery was the motive.
Giddens told KSAT he believes the women took $850 from his son before killing him.

"He was a good guy," said Giddens. "He was no angel, but he was a good guy, just a normal person. I loved him very much."
Giddens Jr. had a mechanic shop on New Braunfels Street and was well known around town as "Big Fredo," KSAT reported in 2015.
"I go to the cemetery, and I talk to him, but it seems like it goes on deaf ears," Giddens told KSAT. "Somebody needs to step up and say something."
Giddens Jr. would have been 51 years old in October 2014, KSAT reported, so he would be 59 in October 2022 if he were still alive.
