ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The family of a south Albany man murdered outside his home this week needs help to pay for his funeral. Organizers are preparing for a candlelight vigil for 23-year old Jeffrey Nunley at the Litman Cathedral at the corner of West Whitney Avenue and Poplar Street to remember a life that was cut short.  

Family members and co-workers are still shocked over 23-year-old Jeffrey Nunley's death.

"Mad, Albany has gotten out of hand. We have got to get this killing situation under control," said Nunley's Co-worker Al Rogers.  

"They're doing as well as can be expected considering you know it was such a shock and tragedy on Monday night," said Nunley's Aunt Lisa Riddle.  

Nunley was gunned down outside his home on West Whitney Avenue Monday night. Riddle has set up a "gofundme" page to raise money for his funeral expenses.    

"He did not have insurance and with this being such a tragedy and him being so young, there was no preparation for funeral expenses," said Riddle.  

So far, the effort has raised more than $2300. If extra money is raised, it will go in an account for Nunley's two-year-old daughter. Nunley worked at Air Quality Services for over a year and co-workers say he was a hard worker.  

"We caught him on a job that was unrelated to air conditioning and he was such a hard worker, honest, giving, loyal, kindhearted," said Nunley's co-worker Joe Brim.  

Police say the case remains under investigation but they need your help in searching for the gunman by calling 436- TIPS. Nunley's employer is also offering a $1000 reward in the case.

"People know what happened. I know people know what happened and somebody needs to step forward and say hey this is it," said Rogers.  

A funeral date has not been set for Nunley. Family members say the funeral could cost up to $8000.
