Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Family and friends gathered on Friday night to remember the man identified by the coroner as Christopher Jones Jr.

The 24-year-old was shot and killed two days ago inside an apartment near Nellis and Owens.

Jones' family gathered to remember a man who was a beloved husband, father and son.

Julie Tatum watched as her grandson lit a candle in honor of his father.

"He's never going to know his father, but we're gonna show him plenty of pictures. He's looking at the door waiting for him to come in and he's not going to come in anymore."

Police said the woman responsible, 21-year-old Anyshia Douglas, is still on the loose. She is believed to be armed and dangerous. Police said she killed Jones over a dice game and some money.

Jones' friends and family said they have known Douglas for years, and they don't want to see her harmed, they just want to see her locked up.

"I don't want no revenge, I just want justice. She didn't have to do that," said Tatum.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Anyshia Douglas, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
