Friends say Jordan Sigli was one of the nicest kids they've ever met.

Ask almost anyone in the Brady Heights Neighborhood and they'll tell you Jordan Sigli was truly a great kid.

"He was just one of my favorite boys in the neighborhood," Nathan Pickard, victim's friend, said. "I'm going to miss him."

Family friends say the teen was walking home with a friend after a youth group meeting when someone offered them a ride to a birthday party at a North Tulsa bar.

The party was for a 17-year-old and friends say Jordan's mother did not know he was going. Once the boy stepped out of the car, police say Jordan was shot in the chest.

He later died at a Tulsa hospital.

"He was just really a shining example of the kind of young man a community wants to see grow up," victim's friend Giles Gregory said.

Jordan was close to a lot of people.

"Saturday morning, I could count on him coming and knocking on my door asking if he could mow the lawn," Gregory said.

A community garden was started in hopes of bringing neighbors together. Many say Jordan spent a lot of time here and in fact his favorite thing to plant was peppers.

"Jordan would work on that really hard," Pickard said. "He's a very hard worker."

Nathan Pickard says the sixth grader was a self-starter and the sky was the limit for his future.

"He was just a great boy," Pickard said. "He was very polite, well mannered, brought up well by his mother."

"We've watched him grow up around here for the last couple of years and we won't get that anymore," Giles Gregory said.

The neighborhood plans to plant a tree in memory of their young friend.

We also spoke with Jordan's family. They told us right now they're shifting their focus to praying and uplifting each other during this tragedy.

Police are still looking for the shooter in this case. They believe the gunman was driving a gold or tan 90s model Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis.
