Mark Goff, 23, shot twice while walking to post office, according to mother

She said her son was about to graduate from a trade school for refrigeration and was a good person who didn't have any enemies.

"My son didn't do anything to bother anybody. All he did was work, (go) home, play video games. He loved his mother," Munford said. 

Goff's mother said she was on the phone with him when the line went silent.

"He was getting ready to say something before the phone dropped. And I kept saying, 'Baby? Baby? Are you OK? Answer. Please answer,'" Munford said. "So I hung up the phone and called back three times and he didn't answer." 

Munford said her son son died after being shot in the chest and in his side.

Police confirmed they are still searching for the gunman, who was dressed in black clothing. 

"Anybody that knows anything, that did this to my son, please say something," Munford said.
