Eleven years after her son was killed at a Memorial Day party, a Las Vegas mother holds out hope her son's killers will be brought to justice.
 
Steven Beck was one of three people killed at a block party near Lake Mead Boulevard and D Street in May of 2006.
 
Beck and the other two victims, Tina Robles and Gemar Samuel, were among more than a hundred people at the annual block party and car show.
 
Several others were injured when the gunmen opened fire.
 
Police have not named any suspects, despite interviewing dozens of witnesses at the block party.
 
As the group ages, Beck's mother, Shanna Vukasin, holds out hope that someone will be brave enough to pick up the phone.
 
"We just keep hoping that those people that were younger then will grow up and say, you know maybe the right thing to do is to come forward," Vukasin said.
 
Police say the shooting was gang related, but said most of the people at the party were likely innocent bystanders.
