“I want some answers,” Latisha Powell told FOX 8 last year. “I want to know who would go out of the way and put a gun to my son’s head and shoot him at point-blank range.”

Cleveland police released surveillance video of potential persons of interest in the shooting last month.

The video shows two people running from an apartment sidewalk and then walking down Colonnade Rd.

Police say Langford died on September 13.

He was having difficulty breathing and died at Euclid Hospital.
