CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The violence over Memorial Day weekend continues to devastate a family on Cleveland's east side, who lost 24-year-old Myron Anderson in a shooting near East 71st on Hecker Avenue.

Police have no leads and have made no arrests in the investigation. No witnesses will come forward with information.

"The detective is saying he doesn't have anybody that is willing to talk to him. If he can't get nobody to talk to him, he can't know what happened," said Yvonne Ridley, Anderson's aunt.

Ridley said it's frustrating for her mourning family that no one will speak up to help police find her nephew's murderer.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams spoke about the same problem after the shootings Memorial Day weekend.

"We have to police our community better from the inside, from the people who actually live in these neighborhoods," said Williams.

The family has a memorial to Anderson in the front yard of their home with flowers, balloons and candles.

"He was loved," said Ridley. "They took something special from us."
