North Tulsa ---
Two Tulsa teenagers where shot and killed this month and Tuesday, a community came together looking for answers. 17-year old Kayla Ferrante died Saturday night in an east Tulsa shooting.
Just days before that, 13-year old Jordan Sigli was gunned down in a drive by in north Tulsa.
Right now, officers believe both instances could have been random acts of violence.
The family says Jordan had gone to the area of Tanzi’s bar at 32nd and North Peoria when he was shot in the parking lot. His death has left a community in mourning and searching for answers.
Friends, family, classmates and teachers packed Emerson Elementary to celebrate the life of the 13-year old. Listening to the service, you are able to get a quick glimpse as to who this boy was.
"He had himself together on his attire always. And you can believe that anytime he went anywhere he was going to be looking real dapper and real smooth,” says his great uncle, Bobby Moore.
Aside from keeping up his image, his family says Jordan loved to tinker with motors.
"He was always building on something and tearing apart his lawnmower and putting them on something. That was the thing that he loved was his go-kart,” says his grandmother, Janet Phipps.
He touched so many people around him, that even his principal read a poem to honor his life.
"We know bad things happen to good people and we're all going to miss Jordan,” says his great aunt, Marsha Moore.
Jordan’s mother, Michelle was too overcome with grief to speak, and could only hang on to loved ones for support. As the family says goodbye, Tulsa police are working quickly to find a motive and to find the shooter.
Following Wednesday’s service, white balloons were released into the sky to try and bring some type of closure and healing to this north Tulsa community.
Police have very little information to go on, however they are searching for a damaged gold or tan 90’s model Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis. The car was last seen driving down Peoria.
If you would like to help out the family, a fund has been set up under Jordan Sigli’s name at the Bank of Oklahoma.
