The mother of a teen killed eight years ago Feb. 21 opened up to 13 Action News about the pain of not knowing who was responsible.

Karen Brill Kelley's son Aric was shot to death after a party near Charleston and Nellis boulevards in 2009.

There wasn't a break in the case until last summer when 4 men were arrested in the murder of Aric Brill.

Kelley says it was a miracle when the arrests were announced.

The mother is concerned about another teen killed, Tiris Coleman Jr., who was shot Sunday evening.

"You know there's a whole bunch of people out there, just like there was here with Aric that saw what happened, and someone needs to come forward for that boy," Kelley says.

She says that Coleman's family needs to keep the faith and keep praying someone will come forward with information about who killed the 17-year-old.
