Twenty-year-old Travis Hubbert was found shot in the driveway of a home along Tucker Street around 11:44 p.m. on Monday, an incident report shows. Hubbert was taken to the hospital for treatment, though he soon after succumbed to his injuries, police said.

“The person who ended up taking away my grandson — a new father-to-be, a son, a brother, a nephew. It’s just, I feel like I’m in a nightmare,” Hubbert’s grandmother, Grace Robinson, said during the conference.

A witness later told detectives that he and Hubbert were in the driveway smoking and hanging out prior to the shooting, reports show.

According to the witness, a vehicle with an unknown state tag drove south along Tucker Street past the home, shooting Hubbert as it went by, police said.

“We can’t bring him back. Every time I look at a picture, I just — I just get choked up,” Robinson said. “I don’t hear his voice anymore.”

While no information on the make or model of the suspect vehicle was provided, police said they were able to contact nearby homeowners along Tucker Street with security cameras.

Police said the motive for the shooting is unknown at this time, and no suspects have been identified.

Young said during the conference that the department is relying on help from the public to catch the suspected shooter.

“This one, we’re gonna need some assistance on. This one, we’re going to need the support of the community,” Young said.
