SPENCER, Oklahoma -

Sunday marks one year since a Spencer nightclub shooting that left one man dead. Investigators are still in dark when it comes to leads. Now, the victim's family is looking for new ways to find justice.

Shaker's Sports Bar in Spencer has been closed ever since the night of violence in August 2012. Friends say the victim, Jean-Ciar Pierce, was in his car at the bar's parking lot when a bullet struck his neck.

"It's the last place my son was seen alive," Pierce's mom Sarah Burdine said. "[It's] very difficult knowing he never made it home from this parking lot."

Deputies say a fight broke out inside the club. Someone walked in, fired several rounds and then continued shooting in the parking lot. Pierce was hit.

"The [Oklahoma County] Sheriff's Office has been diligent about working the case," said Burdine. "However, it's a year later, and no more leads are coming in."

Flowers still mark the spot where police found Pierce dead in his car at the intersection of NE 23rd and Spencer Rd.

Family members are working with the Sheriff's Office on new ways to publicize unsolved murders on metro billboards. In the meantime, Burdine continues keeping close tabs on investigators and praying for an arrest.

"It doesn't give us any bit of closure … that we so desperately need," Burdine said.

Family and friends plan to meet at the crime scene location on Sunday; the anniversary of Pierce's death. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office at (405)-869-2501.
